Annie Abrahams & Clément Charmet


Webflâneur 4.0

Webflâneur 4.0 by Annie Abrahams & Clément Charmet :: A kind of compressed browsing, like sometimes those dreams, that condense the weight of a whole day in a single action, in which everything gets mixed. This feeling of "watching the cache" of our browser (the hidden?). A discovery tool that brings us back to the earlier ages of the web, when "flaner" was still possible.

Trotting the web guided by a travel software, going from one page to another without doing anything at all, immersing the data flow while observing its interior structure. Going in all directions, losing oneself, finding unexpected relations and gigantic domains that stick, places from where you can hardly escape. To stop and consult the list of the pages you visited, to have its plan, to be able to choose again. Having a possibility to generate at any moment a unique Mashup controlled by a random script. Images, texts, videos and sounds collected during your visit form an orgiastic collage.

If your stroll is very slow, please try another URL or come back at another moment of the day or find a faster connection.
