In the Corridor of Cyberspace opens a body of works dedicated related to internet technologies and the digitalization of our lives and nourished by a research on hacker culture (2015-ongoing) and a Master of Science in Digital Currencies (2019).  I am an intruder and with this awareness I have been meeting and having informal conversations with programmers, activist, thinkers, discussing with them and reading what they suggest.

Up to now, the series is also composed by:  A Bit for Your Thought (evironment, Carrosserie, Basel, 2016),  A Better Chance to Gain Enough Entropy (performance and light boxes, Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Quadriennale, 2016)  I Never Think of the Future. It Comes Soon Enough (performance, Illuminate Festival, Zug, 2018).

 

In the Corridor of Cyberspace is a subjective travel trough one of the meaningful places of debate and encounter of this world.

Between 1992 and 2000 ca. a group of scientists, activists, and libertarians, joined “The Cypherpunk Mailing list” to discuss privacy, cryptography, anonymity and digital money. Jude Milhon, one of the female founders of the group, proposed the name. Among them also: co-founders and authors of the various manifestos Tim May and Eric Hughes, Julian Assange founder of Wikileaks, Philip Zimmerman the inventor of PGP (pretty good privacy). Through political, technical, philosophical and mathematical discussions crypto anarchy culture emerged.

In the Corridor of Cyberspace looks at the origins and explores the framework of hacker culture through an artist book, and a series of talks.
