SAIC Uundergraduate Exhibition Tomorrow at 7 PM

I’ll be showing ConversationPool V7:

ConversationPool uses a series of wired and wireless sensors in conjunction with leaked FBI source code to exploit trusted networks in the name of art. Once the ConversationPool hardware has been installed on a network images from user’s browsing sessions are collected and stored in a central database. Each image in the repository is analyzed for colors, shapes, and human faces. Algorithmically ConversationPool pulls what it considers to be the most interesting images and generates a new collage in real time. Image characteristics and placement of images within the collage are carefully considered as the code builds a new composition. ConversationPool is a microcosm of the internet as a whole, where user’s online habits are tracked and composited to form a digital self, all transparently and without our consent. 

My NetEnvironment project. Using Processing and the FBI’s Carnivore source code to generate a real time 3D environment that reflects current traffic on a network.

The code sniffs for all TCP/UDP connections and plots machines (cubes) and then draws connections between two machines (curves). 

In this version higher port numbers (I had BitTorrent running) are higher in space, and lower port number are lower in space (take a close look when I refresh The New York Times website).

Super basic and super slow at this point, but hey, it works!

Northly Island, it used to be an airstrip, now it’s ‘wild prairie’. Yes, that’s a landscaper watering the vegetation.
