The Lovers
Sneha Solanki




The installation consists of two networked machines. Both display on their monitor a classic romantic poem. One of the two computers is infected with an encrypted stealth virus and contaminates itself as well as its connected partner. The virus contamination runs over the period of the whole exhibition, in which the visitor can witness the ongoing process by watching the mutations on the monitor texts slowly taking place. The poetries presented on the two monitors act as visual indicator and textual interface for the infection provoked by the active virus.
