Desktop Subversibles

March 2003

As computers and the desktop metaphor reach virtual ubiquity in our daily lives, they also become objects we take for granted in daily use. The Desktop Subversibles application suite exploits this ubiquity by focusing on standard desktop activities like copy/paste, mouse movements, and clicks by adding networked and physical outputs to highlight these mundane activities’ collective and collaborative potential. Desktop Subversibles capitalizes on the ubiquity of our interactions with computer desktops to convey awareness of activity and a sense of shared network space among the members of an online and physical community.
