nuage argile

Dimitri Delcourt invited me to collaborate on a installation for the exposition “de l’argile au nuage” (Bibliothèque de Genève). The installation illustrates the ethereal nature of modern cloud based library catalogs.
A drifting algorithm traverses the Z39.50 based api provided by the federation of suisse romande libraries (RERO) jumping from keyword to keyword. The algorithm is run on a node.js server which feeds Dimitri’s dynamic visualization. The expo is visible until November 21.
