Mario Santamaría’s ‘Rabbit Hole’ Network Measures Materiality of Digital Time

Mario Santamaría’s installation Unfixed Infrastructures and Rabbit Holes (2020) opens at Aksioma, Ljubljana, articulating invisible data flows. The Spanish artist programmed a “rabbit hole” network to cycle signals through different geolocations, seeking the maximum possible route allowed by network protocols. The delay—a measure of the materiality of digital time—is visualised by two screens video-streaming a Foucault pendulum, one connected to the gallery WiFi, the other to the “rabbit hole” network.
