With 69.numbers.suck Browserbased follows certain types of graffiti on the public phone booths of Athens. By mapping the re-appearance and cross-references of those writings, the project reads the everyday anarchic networks of scratch and pen, as they reuse – in the way of quizzical nodes – the withering public phone infrastructure in its transition to “private” networks.
Going mobile is all location independent but addressed by the very written 69 prefix of crossed-over digits in obscured messages – are they squabbles or competitions? Readings of those glyphic scratches, brassed off phallic symbols, derelict prophecies, frappe stains, odd patterns and misdialled callers can reveal nothing or just fragments in hindsight.
This changing nature is shaped by streetwalkers, their paths and territories as they are being drawn and redrawn.

BrowserBased (NL / GR)
BrowserBased functions as a practice oriented, open research platform which deals with the browser based context and net-culture as a space for knowledge creation and dispersion. We organise live coding sessions, gatherings for guest speakers, workshops, international exhibitions and more. Currently, the geo-marker of BrowserBased is set in Amsterdam, where the group was first formed from the need to organise a physical hub for the networked arts. We offer a platform for net art, maintain archives of streams and our exhibitions and run an open page on Facebook.
