suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
jochen HARTMANN: Expressing techno-anxiety over the future information economy, this library proposal works by compressing the space of esoteric media into a symmetric maze-like index. Content deemed popular enough for digitization is streamed 24/7 into a series of solo and small group consumption cubes arranged in a modernist status-bar space. The subterranean graveyard is where media, whose fate is yet to be determined is held temporarily.
