Interesting projects – Picidae

Picidae is an art project of the two Swiss artists Christoph Wachter and Matthias Jud. It is a project against censorship in the internet and should enable every internet user to access every web page without being constrained or mintored by authorities.
It works the following way:

If you invoke a pici-server a form field appears to fill in a web address. The pici-server then creates an image of that website and sends this back. [snip taken from here]

The authors have made several travels around the world – even to China – to try out their project.
At the PecheKucha event, where I had a presentation they also were there and talked about Picidae.
They said that they receive a big response from countless people in many countries, if you are interested check out their website.
