'Button' Element with looped Click sound (2000)

This is/was a meditation on the interface of the web (it's a rather old piece now, from 2000) and the insubstatial nature of the level of interaction. A click and a response, and a repetition. I thought it was interesting now, four years on, as a way of questioning what has changed since then, if an art of the internet has developed from the early formal works, or if, once all the Flash and Multimedia born of higher bandwidth is stripped away, we are still left with the same frustrations about the notion of "interactivity", a feature upon which a lot of current net art is dependant, either wisely or unwisely.
