Corruption at a high amount like this image pushes the viewer to look closer and find the shapes and bodies within the mess. Corruption for me represents the complexity of the computer beyond the streamlined and glossy desktop interface. John Maeda aswell as A.Michael Noll really changed my perceptions of the computer and made me realise I always considered the rectangular desktop and its pixels as the computer but they are only a representation of a complex thinking machine. Imagine a computer with no screen, just a keyboard, and it becomes far more mysterious.
