Abstract [en]

The software art installation 're|Traces of Search' probes human-software relationships by examining in detail a specific and situated action: searching on the web. This work exposes the inner workings of this human/non-human connection; the software - the keystrokes, the scripts and function calls occurring during the exchange - are revealed as a tangible artifact and interactive sonification. We invite guests to explore this non-human representation and touch the software, as it touches us back. As well as highlighting a hidden complexity, this work touches upon questions of transparency and privacy of search engines, and to what extent our relationship with software is rooted in control, in contrast to care.
