Eva & Franco Mattes WORKS EXHIBITIONS ABOUT

 

P2P (2022)

A server connected to the open internet, sharing one of our videos via Torrent on the peer-to-peer network. The server has no output, and so the register of the artwork is limited to blinking lights and the noise of the cooling fans. And yet, this artwork is distributed across many locations in a network, accessible to those who are actively sharing the material with others on the torrent.

To access the work you’ll need a Torrent client, here’re the .torrent file and the magnet link

We designed the server cage based on existing data centers. The extra empty space is a common feature that implies further endless expansion to accommodate more data.

The server is using the museum connection to share its content.
