The Web Stalker

"The Web Stalker" (1997-1998) is a software project by I/O/D that generates a deep level re-visualisation of data-space.

The Web Stalker

The Web Stalker is a software application for reading and manipulating information on the World Wide Web. It scans the hyperlinks on WWW-pages, displays their HTML code as the Web Stalker agent is analysing the pages, and maps the hyperlink structure in evocative graphics, allowing for a surprising look at the underside of the Web.

The Web Stalker, free to download from the I/O/D website, is a unique example of the re-visualisation of data-space at a deep level by artists. It proposes that a new, speculative engagement with software as a key locus of contemporary culture is both essential and fruitful.
