AnimalNet: Playful Deconstruction of Network Packets

network protocol communication translated into a tale of Frogs

AnimalNet playfully deconstructs oncoming live TCP/IP packets and visualizes their deconstructed form and function onto a projected screen in the form of mini narratives of animal graphics (frogs & rabbits) to serve both as an interactive and pedagogical tool.

As the GIF illustrates albeit in a text form, each frog represents a single packet and its characteristics illustrate the packet's structure and the frog's action showcase the packet's function. As the user interacts with the installation, more frogs will conjure out of air, that simultaneously attempts to reveal the underlying infrastructure of our normal web activities while invoking absurdity.
