Biennale.py (2001)

 

biennalepy cd

Biennale.py is a computer virus we created – with hackers group Epidemic – for the 49th Venice Biennale. Released on the night of the opening, it quickly spread around the world.

Immaterial and self-replicating, when the virus enters a computer it stays there, hidden, trying to survive for as long as possible.

The CD-ROM contains 10.000 copies of the virus.
