Input Fields Forever

Input Fields Forever (2014-16) is a series of HTML-based “drawings” that reflect on Input Fields as Web-based executors of control and personal data collection, while nullifying this function by transforming them into visual containers for ever changing poetry. Input Fields are “freed” here from this original task and transcend their usual format while not taking but giving back to their users... 

In the new works shown at the Expo, Input Fields are constantly populated with real-time data from online newspapers, inserting sometimes slightly disturbing sometimes more playful sets of keywords based on current news feeds.
