duskin drum, "served or served?"
“served or served?” is a participatory modeling of parallel structures of servers, and inherent limits in the restricting protocols of the operations and architecture of the network. It is a participatory performance that mimics some aspects of servers and data centers while discussing their material life. The performance or game makes a human allegorical interpretation of the structure and materiality of our dispersed everyday digital knowing.
