INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Internet Performance pt 1

Leave a comment

For this performance I decided to enter and explore what is known as the Dark Web. The internet started off as a method of communication between international and national networks in computers. It has now evolved into something more…intimate and disturbing. The Dark Web is where the ugliest side of human nature is most prevalent. There, you can find illegal porn (child, animal, rape, etc.), hitmen services, stolen cards, and much, much more. Originally, I had planned on uploading an edited video of me exploring these sites, but scrapped that idea. I realized not only is the Dark Web disturbing to see, it is also full of illegal sites. Because of this, no one would dare to announce to the world that they are on it to the world. This made me come to the decision of doing a live stream where I would explain how to get on the Dark Web and how to be safe and anonymous on it. So, I did just that. I uploaded this live stream to my YouTube account.
