This tetralogy consists of four websites showing both the bright side and the dark side of the internet. Through the websites, the audiences interact with each other in multiple ways, participating in this ongoing story that reflects the virtual world we also live in.

Lights are set up metaphorically, lighting up only one side and hiding the other side in darkness. Viewers on the dark side are provided with a safe and anonymous environment to observe those on the opposing side.

The first pair of websites showing on both sides are in the same world synchronized through the local network. Viewers on the bright side can build a structure with bricks and cement together, while the viewer on the other side can use a hammer to destroy it in real time.






Interaction of the first website



This section uses a playful tone and a game-like interaction, allowing people to execute their destructive intentions. It is an imitation of online communities, where rules are created and broken, collaborative efforts and destructive behaviors coexist.

The second website has random pictures and websites appearing and disappearing, attracting viewers' attention. When they are distracted by the amount of information on the page, their faces slowly emerge on the screen. Even if they move around, their reflections remain at the center, surrounding by the overwhelming information and their own echoes.

A line of words emerges and invites viewers on the opposing dark side to come closer. When they get closer to the screen, the face of the viewer on the bright side appears and becomes clear. Once they get close enough, a ghost face suddenly appears, showing them the shadow of themselves in this behavior.
