Our Good(s) Profile 

Returning Feedback in Greetings. Postcards, 2002@Now

The moral identity in the network era. The “economy of attention”. The more we obtain of it, the more it is the credit and the credits we will receive: the good feedback arrive if you pay quickly and well. They are ready cash per se. The moral judgment on ourselves based on functional efficiency. The will of rewarding such an architecture radicalizing its own terms. The feedback of our eBay profile, on sale like postcards and them sent, in form of greetings, to who will buy them. And so obtaining new feedback. Humanly and endlessly.

OutPut

Apple Macintosh SE/30 and Apple HyperCard Stack, 2003

OutPut is a critical and creative consideration about the beginning of personal computing. This fact was initially related to the business field, and as such had a strong influence on production assets. It then rapidly expanded to the home field, as well, further influencing social relationships and lifestyles, which became more and more digital. The protagonist of that revolution of the Eighties was the Macintosh, which was able to concentrate all technological and conceptual aspirations of that epoch, thus leaving a cultural mark on the ones to come, also. The work is based on HyperCard, the first multimedia authoring program (1987), which is the origin itself – from a logical, technical and cultural point of view – of every ipermedia project of present or future times. Moreover, we used the clip art included in its original packaging: they maintain the intact ability to evoke the mindset of an epoch.
