Reconnoitre 2.00 is part of a series of made under the umbrella title “Reconnoitre” It consists of specially written software that visualises the Internet spatially. The project exists in a number of forms. Reconnoitre 2.00 is the installation version. Aims: Corby’s work aims to develop different paradigms for the development and use of software that amplifies the capabilities of code as language, and opens up software production to be inclusive of the poetic, political and emotional domains. This particular project takes the web browser as its subject. It allows the user to search for material on the Internet, but then displays it as a navigable, immersive, evolving and spatialised structure. The project approaches the Internet as an environment with a high metabolism whose boundaries are continuously re-shaped; accreting and thickening under the influence of powerful social and commercial forces, rather than a flat formatted environment that in commercial web design is treated as an extension of a magazine.
