Net Eater is a series of interactive/generative environments based on data captured from communication networks (traffic) and transforms it into a variety of audiovisual forms. Net Eater is concentred on abstract, statistic interpretation of the data flow, rather than semantic correlations. In other words: dataflow are describing the structures of scanned networks.
Contrary to "classic" mapping project based on geolocation process Net Eater is concentred on "electronic" qualities. Forms of data and connections between them are located in virtual space in accordance to parameters taken "direct from data" (IP addresses, etc.).
Early, prototyped, version of theNet Eater was commissioned by the 2.0 Gallery (Warsaw, Poland).
