0&I, free software, 2016



0&I is a computer software, freely downloadable and installable by the user-viewer on his computer.

This software creates a discreet but permanent modification on the way the computer works. The software changes the blinkrate of the cursor in any program in which the user can type data (Microsoft Word, for exemple). The rate is slowed down to the same number of breaths of an adult human body per minute.

The cursor is considered as one of the precise entry point between two realities : the analog one and the virtual one, just after the "physical world" and just before the "data world". By slowing down a digital rhythm and adapting it to a natural human rhythm, the artist question the tighter and tighter relation between « natural » and « digital » occuring nowadays.
