háček is a physical installation, VR experience, and printed takeaway that employs data to inform an immersive installation while positioning its larger impact toward metaphors of the networked landscape, as well as security, cryptology, and wayfinding and mapping. háček is not just data visualizations in the formal sense but more akin to abstractions and metaphorical works that reflect the data, pieces of art potentially to be enjoyed out of context.
The data is taken from real network traffic logs, tracking hackers in real time as they pummel the Shmoo Group site with DDoS attacks, port scans, and sneaky malware as they compete to be the first to get their hands on the prize. The valiant defenders deflect bots, cheats, and attacks at every turn as they try to keep the site online.
Come to the art installation on Tuesday, November 1, from 5:25pm to 6:25pm to meet the artists.
