JODI pioneered web-based art in the mid-1990s. By radically disrupting the conventions and functions of systems such as web pages, computer programs, video and computer games, mobile apps, and other digital technologies, JODI’s work destabilizes the relationship between computing technology and its users. JODI continue to work in the widest possible variety of media and techniques, from installations, software and websites to performances and exhibitions. JODI’s work is featured in most art historical volumes about electronic and media art, and has been exhibited worldwide at Documenta-X, Kassel; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; ZKM, Karlsruhe; ICC, Tokyo; CCA, Glasgow; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Eyebeam, NewYork; FACT, Liverpool; MOMI, New York, among others.

During their stay in Trondheim, JODI investigated the phenomenon of tracking, how smartphone signals and usage track our daily movement. In VVIFI4Garden”, a spatial site-specific work developed specifically for Adressaparken they ask: What if we were visually aware of that data and analytics? How would this influence the movement and experiences of those who pass through the park? JODI added local connectivity in Adressaparken, where visitors can have free WIFI, but in a sense WRONG WiFi. By channeling content controlled by visitors devices and geographical position, JODI created a new net topology within the park, to visualize the hidden waves of our digital behaviors and movements that we unconsciously already build.

Michael Leisz and Hannah Mjølsnes developed a new interactive project for Adressaparken with the working title “Current.” Their work proposes a site-specific approach to the park, emphasizing one of its characteristics as being a place where people are in transition and passing by. How can an artwork be experienced when in movement? They worked with this by creating a visual and auditory layer on top of the park with recording from a geographically removed place; a glacier in Norway. A relationship is established between the action of the visitor, and the action of the water in the glacier, shaping its surfaces through freezing, melting and running through it. Michael Leisz is a programmer and artist who has worked extensively with engaging the audience in interactive works focused on communication through the senses. Hannah Mjølsnes is an artist whose primary medium is video and sculpture. She creates installations with large-scale projections of natural elements. Their collaborative work centers on human relations to natural and digital landscapes and processes.
