Art Hack Day
Transmediale : Afterglow
Tech Mining

BbB is a cloud shrinking service created by Justin Blinder and Benjamin Gaulon. The project started from a common interest for digital waste and data recycling. During Art Hack Day at the 2014 Transmediale Festival in Berlin, BbB was presented as a network performance and installation.

BbB displays the latest pastebin* uploads, while requesting at the same time for the content to be removed by sending automatic cease and desist emails. Each file displayed is visible for the last time at Transmediale 2014 and projected onto a light sensitive surface leaving an afterglow. BbB reduces the data accumulated on the internet, bit by bit.
