FEATURES: SpyLab / greatfirewallofchina.org
Presentation about the project greatfirewallofchina.org at DEAF07.
The new media research collaboration SpyLab makes art from video, sound, and environmental data from around the globe, from unknowing and knowing contributors. Its projects examine the realities of cross-cultural communication: What are the rules? What do we define as successful interaction? Are we achieving a reasonable understanding? To contribute to transparency and an open discourse on censorship customs in China, greatfirewallofchina.org keeps track of which and how many websites are being blocked for internet users in China. The site allows you to open any URL via a server in China and check whether it is blocked to the users there.
