The network shows interest. We can tell it everything and it will listen - seemingly without judgment. Almost like a therapist - solely reflecting ourselves back to us. Or a guardian-angel perhaps, invisible, but there all the time in the clouds.
Fibbe & Wiedijk are fascinated by the early marketing strategies of the first mobile and internet network providers as they were tasked to normalize constant and invasive connectivity to the average, not yet connected consumer.
And divide and break us, into community.
In the installation, 17 Reasons Why People Aren’t Listening to You, Fibbe & Wiedijk associatively explore the question whether there could be unconscious pleasure in the way the internet surveils us. What if we secretly enjoy it? To be seen, to be heard, to be guided and to not be forgotten?
