  • Everything is in perfect working order

    'Everything is in perfect working order' is an electronic device that forces you to be facing North with your computer when browsing the internet to properly view websites on your screen. Facing any other direction rotates the web page and its contents in the browser relative to this Northerly direction, emphasizing The North as a reference point in a world wide network. Facing South displays web pages completely back to front.
    The ability to access the internet in informal situations like in a park, on a bus, or on your toilet can create a belief in “The Digital” as an always-present, all-encompassing experience shared by all. This device serves as a reminder of the very physical infrastructure of internet that make this ´digital´ experience possible and its tight coupling to the physical world. Just like the physical world, even a virtual space has concentrations of power in the underpinning material infrastructure.
