Migrant Navigator
Darko Fritz
http://artefact.mi2.hr/migrant/navigator.htm

How many people are living in the places they were born? The Migrant Navigator project deals with the issue of migration, the notions of home, identity and nostalgia. It consists of three parts:

. Home - poster project
. The Future of Nostalgia - flower installation
. illegal immigrants dis.information - on-line project


ONLINE
HOME

. Home . 1 - 30 . 11 . 2002

The Home poster consists of an image of the 'Home' icon from the Netscape Navigator browser. Unlike the original 'Home' icon, here it is printed in black and silver and white. It is blown-up to 2 x 2 metres and displayed on a white background [variable dimensions up to billboard size; 3 x 4m, 2.5 x 5m].

The posters are displayed on commercial billboards close to the Croatian borders. A part of the 'Home' icon poster is that there is no further information at the point of the poster. There is no other product behind this advertising campaign, i.e. the poster is advertising it's own image and message. In November and December 2002 the posters were also displayed on billboards in Zagreb. This work is part of the Ježevo Motel project.

The future of nostalgia

illegal immigrants dis.information
screen detail


. illegal immigrants dis.information . on-line since April 2002

At the low-fi list [http://www.low-fi.org.uk] it is described:
<We are lead into 'home' by repeated iconography of the home button from Netscape including a fantastic page where the icon has grown to a square meter. Once you get beyond the 'home' icon, this 'dis.informative' site about illegal immigration issues was built by '[mis]using TraceNoizer software'. This process renders pages which are less than helpful and a sort of representation of confused and second hand information. The project develops to question notions of home and displacement.>


Powered by works by: Netscape Navigator, Jo van der Spek, TraceNoizer, Kein Mensch is Illegal

Different web sites consist of dis.information --- underlying an illegal immigrants' administrative chaos. New homepages were randomly and automatically generated using keywords and powered by [mis]using TraceNoizer software.
