un_wiki (2007)

"un_wiki, by Wayne Clements…limits itself to retrieving and making visible the log file with contents refused by the open and democratic community of Wikipedia: a crafty speculation on the paradoxes of a system that matches the maximum opening made possible by the software and a substantially oligarchic structure as the only guarantor of the contents' quality".

(New media curator and critic, Domenico Quarantor.)

un_wiki received Award of Distinction, Net Vision category, Prix Ars Electronica 2006. It has been widely exibited internationally, including in a Japanese language version.
