install.exe/Jodi

«install.exe/Jodi» is the first print publication of the net art pioneers Jodi, the probably best known artists, who use the internet, digital data and programming code as their artistic means. Flipping through the pages at first sight you will find the colorful images of Jodi’s net art and software art. Behind the foldout pages you find text analyses of their work.

«install.exe/Jodi» uses the possibilities of print and of a special binding method to create a paper-equivalent to Jodi’s art: The relationship between images on the outside, hidden texts and discovering readers corresponds to the one between the visual surface of the screen, the source code behind it and the user in Jodi’s digital work.
