INPUT FIELDS FOREVER: Roots
Ursula Endlicher 2019
A short procedural narrative of two superimposed systems – HTML pull-down menus and roots on a forest floor – caught in an endless loop on the cusp of intercommunication. Taking the user out of "user input", pull-down menus answering their own questions.
“Roots” is part of the ongoing series INPUT FIELDS FOREVER (2015–) that reflects on Web-based input forms; “freed” from their usual format of data collection, they become visual and poetic containers creating new spaces between digital and natural systems.
