MediaTheory-ArtEZ

In preparation of our online meeting with the students of ArtEZ on Monday 26 April 2021, organised by Sanneke Huisman

http://mouchette.org/

My recommandation is to have your own visit of the website, a personal circulation, and to note all the questions that occur. Try it on a desktop computer, but also on tablet or phone just to find out if you see the same or different things. A lot of the art of Mouchette is in the circulation (it’s a jungle!) and in the interaction with the viewer.

Once your visit is done (once or more) , then you might check out the visits made and recorded by other viewers.

Some links: This is a sort of visual map that was made by a user in 2001
