7 Windows (2010)

In the DLL and EXE files in the well hidden system folders of Windows 7, imagery lies idle that appears to have not been touched for decades. One of them is the icon of the Winlogon process, handling authentication and user profiles, setting up the desktop environment and checking if a legal copy of Windows is used. This significant process and its associated icon is located at C:\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe

Its manifestation in real space took place at Platoon Kunsthalle—seven slightly modified variations of this icon were hung side by side.

"7 Windows give insight into the ancestry of Windows 7 and the system's current spiritual condition." — johannes p osterhoff
