Considered leading pioneers of net art, Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans—the duo behind the artist collective JODI—produce video and new media works that play with the increasing presence of technology in our daily lives. JODI disrupts and disassembles ubiquitous software, video games, and popular internet platforms such as Google Maps and Twitter, cultivating coding malfunctions and programming glitches. Concerned with exploring the chance, uncanny products of these system breakdowns, Heemskerk and Paesmans suggest a new aesthetics for the digital age. In GEO GOO (2008), an online artwork, the imagery of Google Maps is distorted and rendered abstract, proposing new modes of navigating familiar digital landscapes.
