Service Set

Mateus Domingos

Service Set is a series of wifi access points scattered throughout the festival. Visitors are invited to scan the wifi networks to discover the hidden access points and the game contained within them. To complete the game visitors will need to piece together information by connecting to different access points.

Mateus Domingos’s recent work explores the history of the Luddites in the East Midlands and wider practices of technological resistance today. Permacomputing, feminist servers, shadow libraries and counter-cloud actions guide his low-tech practice. His research is based at the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image (CSNI).
