Future is Fake

From Rhizome Artbase
2003
Description

This animation was kind of an accident. I was playing with the code with
this program called Processing, and I started making arrows that flip over
to reveal another side of themselves. Then I just put two arrows and a
triangle to make a face, and it became a portrait of somebody that has
arrows instead of eyes and a triangle instead of a mouth. I dont know such a
person, but I liked it anyway, so I decided to put it on a domain.
To chose a domain name I reffered to this old book by Douglas Coupland that
I was reading at the time, and the chapter titles were really cool, almost
like things one could imagine to have heard. I chose "future is fake" from
these, and I put the arrow person there. In any case I might meet such a
person in the future so its better to be prepared.
