degenerative
2005 by eugenio tisselli

every time someone visits this page, one of the characters that make up the html code gets either deleted or replaced. this causes a step-by-step degeneration, not only of the page's content, but also of its structure.

one day, all this text will be unreadable. this will happen slowly or quickly, depending on how this page is visited. it will not be a natural decomposition: it will be the effect of code that lies within. like an unstoppable disease, this code will eventually render the page sick and crippled.

¿repeated viewing can kill? ¿are our eyes predators of their targets?

your visit will leave a permanent mark. this page will not be the same after you visit it.

the only hope for this page to survive is that nobody visits it. but then, if nobody does, it won't even exist. ¿does this happen with all the products of visual culture? ¿why is everything getting renewed constantly? ¿does everything contain the seed of its own destruction?

¿is visual culture a ritual of cannibalism and rebirth?

the only way to aim for permanence is through constant change

seeing is not an innocent action. seeing is not an innocent action. seeing is not an innocent action. seeing is not an innocent action.
