Recomposing the Web: Writing Software to Investigate Software
This workshop will introduce methods for manipulating existing web-based software systems as a way of understanding their cultural effects. Drawing inspiration from works of net art, tactical media, and hacktivism, participants will develop strategies and write code to change how today's websites look and what they afford. By adding to, subtracting from, and mashing together these systems, such code will enable investigations that reveal how software changes who we are and what do.
