CRASH RUN (2002)

CRASH RUN is an amusing simulator of system and interface crashing that reminds us of those horrifying moments when we helplessly watch our beloved hard-disc going mad. In this piece Kiran Subbaiah uses screensavers, desktop utilities and prank programmes to make the user believe that his/her system is in the process of no return and creates moments of surprise when he/she instinctively tries to intervene into the collapse by interacting. CRASH RUN is a critique on the perception of interface as a flat entity.
