Antarctica through a direct Internet connection

This one I enjoy very much :-)

“Departing from the paintings of the Antwerp painter Jan van Kessel (1672), under the heading of “Room of arts and miracles” in which the cultural knowledge of the world was presented as a series of mannerist paintings, Kr+CF presents a computer model (knowledge model) about Antarctica which has the following origins: -the unrepressable expansion of virtual information spaces to shape the complex information processing through networks. -the immaterial visualization of the (scientific) topics involving Antarctica can only gain meaning when related to those matters on and off Antarctica that they concern. -contrary to the 16th and 17th century “Wunderkammer”, where static objects and descriptions had to give an impression of reality, nowadays, dynamic systems are used to visualize continually changing processes in a model.
The audience was contacted to existing scientific research stations on Antarctica through a direct Internet connection. These telephone connections will be visualized through a minute monitor in the exposition room. In the same room, a computer graphic representing Antarctica will be projected. The audience will be able to retrieve information through the telephone connection and this information will change the arctic “image”. Thus, the image the audience will get of Antarctica will be largely dependent on, and constructed from the – in this case scientific – information from Internet.
