Endnode (AKA Printer Tree)
2002, plywood, inkjet printers, 8 1/2" x 11" office paper, cables, computer, email discussion lists
Beta Launch: Eyebeam Artists in Residence '02, Eyebeam Atelier, New York, NY

Endnode is a networked sculpture that literally and figuratively represents the branching of the Internet. Printers nested within the plywood branches of a large “tree” produce hard copies of emails that fall to the ground like leaves or apples, becoming “endnodes” in the worldwide information flow. The general aesthetic of the piece is home-made “Franken-tree.” The emails come from a list created for the project that is centered on art, technology, and communication. Online avatars M. River and T. Whid guide the project.
