Hi there! My name is Sander Molenaar and i will take over the Depot Basel instagram this week to post about topics which i find interesting in regards to digital aesthetics and virtual methods. Letsgo! First image is from "The age of earthquakes - a guide to the extreme present" by Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland and Hans Ulrich Obrist. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #shumonbasar #hansulrichobrist #douglascoupland @rednose_industries ethel_baraonacc: @shumonbasar
Visualisation of a retro Trojan virus called MEMZ, emulated by youtube user danooct1. After a series of error messages and appearing icons, the virus screencaps the whole screen until it crashes itself down. After restarting the PC, the only function will be an infinite playing animation of the Nyan Cat. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #trojan #visualvirus #nyancat #digital #PC
The term "networking" derives from a concept developed by Robert Filliou and George Brecht. The Eternal Network developed during the summer of 1965 at a workshop they were hosting. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #networking #eternalnetwork #1965 j_lees_gourmet_bbq_sauceGreat aplhlondonThis is lovely, love your aesthetic!

"Poor images are poor because they are heavily compressed and travel quickly. They lose matter and gain speed. But they also express a condition of dematerialization, shared not only with the legacy of conceptual art but above all with contemporary modes of semiotic production" - Hito Steyerl - In Defense of the Poor Image (image by Hito Steyerl, compressed 1500 times by algorithm) #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #hitosteyerl #digitaldecay #onlineimage phvtvreif you screenshot the same picture a lot of times, you'll be able to witness the same effect! rotunda_magazine"The wretched of the screen" 👌🏻⚡️

Saga V1.0 by Mat Dryhurst: "The Saga framework allows you to make a distinction between the different meanings a piece of work assumes depending upon whether it's shared on a personal blog, on a company blog, or as part of an ad-revenue supported magazine. You may now assert the right to alter the work in the time and context which it lives. Work is no longer petrified, but live." #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #sagaplatform #distribution #matdryhurst #platform maricagigante👏
"The current web is based on a business model of spying on users and selling the information. We believe we are at a very interesting point where a combination of blockchain technology with peer-to-peer file systems gives us the necessary tools to reinvent the web, opening possibilities to other models beyond giant data centers, Amazon Allowance, and walled gardens. Txtblock is an experiment in this direction." Written by PWR studio about using blockchain technology to distribute text and information, in "The Block is a Successor to the Book: A Publishing proposal".

Margaret Hamilton, head of software engineering at NASA in the 60's, standing next to a stack of paper containing the software for the Apollo 11 space program. She supervised the process of inventing the necessary technology that would eventually land the first people on the moon. The modern concept of software did not existed yet, so she invented the principles of software engineering herself. The code has been recently published on Github. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #softwaredesign #depotbaselnetwork #sandermolenaar #firstsoftware #nodigitalwithouther #1960 #nasa #softwareengineering #motherofsoftware #margarethamilton n.schaetti.publicNice phvtvrethis is impressive luis_medina15So cool cultureshock_mediaAn amazing shot and inspiring story.

"Dystopian Network" is a network simulation where i tried to question the neutrality of online distribution, by building a ghetto-network. The installation consists of a network which is disposed over 8 imacs, a big screen, and a nervous system of cables. Users are put in a LAN-party where they are subjected to a uncanny stream of obscure content, and need to download as much as possible in order to obtain dominance in the network.

Close-up from the User Interface of Dystopian Network. The users can spy on eachother by viewing the data on the screen and the movement of the cursors. Viruses and videos circulate between the users, creating a chaotic and unregulated experience. The project attempted to critique on the mindless use of our online spaces and was a research in how a network could be used as a medium for design.

The Server of Dystopian Network resides in this screen. It connected the whole network and displayed the actions of the individual users, stripping them from every bit of privacy. The Server decided the course of the game, so individual users had only a limited amount of influence. The network was connected with a nervous system which was laid out between the computers and the screen.

My take-over on the depot_basel insta is done. It was a pleasure! Thanks to all who have watched, liked, and disliked, you mean the world to me. And of course thanks to depot_basel for having me. I would like to close with another excerpt from "The Age Of Earthquakes - A Guide To The Extreme Present" - All best, Sander. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #sandermolenaar #depotbaselwork #becauseitwasalsomyholiday #ciao

Über das Format

Depot Basel verfolgt seit seiner Gründung in 2011 das Ziel, den Diskurs über kontemporäre Gestaltung voranzubringen und ihn zu öffnen. Die neuste Initiative in diesem Bestreben ist Net-work:  Ein Format, bei dem Wir Designerinnen und Nichtdesignerinnen unseren Instagram-Account zur Verfügung stellen, um sich aus eigener Perspektive am kontemporären Designdiskurs zu beteiligen.
