Alternative Algorithms

The IP Browser This is a one year old project on alternative algorithms that I never posted, so here it comes on its one year anniversary (project was done in collaboration w/ Alexander Galloway and DMI/govcom.org) In this project we wished to explore number spaces, specifically the numerical range of available IP addresses. To view this numerical space, we created a web browser with a limited set of features: the user can either surf to the next higher IP address or the next lower IP address using forward and backward buttons. Like a radio scanner, the browser skips over empty parts of the spectrum, incrementing the current IP address upward or downward until the next available web server is found. In this way, the user is able to browse according to specific IP address neighborhoods.
