Collecting MouseMiles won't get you a free plane flight, but it will help to move a model train around a track. And by clicking your mouse, you could be adding to an ambient sound installation representing global computer activity. MouseMiles and Clicks are two of Jonah Brucker-Cohen's interactive Desktop Subversibles - software art that encourages us to rethink desktop behaviours we take for granted. Other projects in this collection include ClipIt, providing a window into other computer users' copy-and-paste actions, and MouseTraces, creating visual art from desktop activity. Take a look around -- Brucker-Cohen's site contains many other intriguingly titled interactive projects such as PoliceState, IPO Madness and Crank the Web. - Helen Varley Jamieson
