<nettime> lost, wikileaks, p2p file sharing: a visual remix (with soundtrack by m.i.a.)


happy 2011

please allow me to announce "lost+remixed":

1. the final chapter of the lost tv series was downloaded from a spanish website whose legal status was then being debated by the local government

2. two key scenes were extracted from the chapter and exported as jpeg sequences (warning: spoilers)

3. the jpeg sequences were remixed algorithmically

lost + remixed was inspired by the "brainwash video", projected by the dharma initiative to captive "hostiles" after torturing and interrogating them, with the purpose of inducing amnesia.

the texts in lost + remixed were selected from the cables published by wikileaks, which revealed the pressure put by the us government on spain to pass a law that would illegalize file-sharing websites.
