For Manifesta 4, have set up a system of three different networks and have been documenting on a daily basis since the beginning of the year where they are located. With a GPS (Global Positioning System) transmitter they send their location via a mobile telephone network which is then entered on a map at their web site.
The subject of their work is the consequences for society arising from the new technologies, consequences which are never questioned as long as things go well. The two media artists exercise on themselves the feared public data horror which leads to a loss of privacy. They investigate simultaneously possibilities of artistic production on the internet. One of these - to date probably the most provocative but little noted idea of the artist duo - was to create the web site Almost identical with that of the Holy See, but with slight deviations, it was accessible for a whole year on the internet without anybody complaining and was then unmasked by themselves.
