"Peripheral no2: KEYBOARD" reflects anew on the keyboard, this strange
object which we have beneath our eyes without really seeing it. It
writing and language and the articulation of the voice and hands; and
examines their importance for data processing and media classification
(images, texts, sounds). "KEYBOARD" is about automation, keyboards as
primitive interfaces, a tool that makes it possible for us to write,
capture, note, structure, communicate, index, research, etc.; and to
navigate into virtual spaces, in computer games for example, where the
arrows are used to move and other keys are assigned to specific actions.
is one of a series of works exploring material devices that are connected
the computer of the Net-surfer.
