What are you doing to me?

I want to share you – What are you doing to me? è una controversa opera di net.art che mira a scandagliare uno degli aspetti più oscuri della sessualità, l’incesto, attraverso testi e immagini d’arte che scuotono ancor di più per l’uso di tecniche di programmazione in javascript che portano a far scomparire le finestre dallo schermo secondo movimenti graduali o a farle muovere autonomamente. Un lavoro inquietante e nondimeno coraggioso, che mette in luce la dimensione privatamente onnivora e voyeristica della rete decontestualizzando anche opportunamente immagini e simboli commerciali.
