ONLINE is a browser-based artwork by Laura Eldret. A grid of user-responsive short video clips fill the screen. These clips feature people Eldret has invited to contribute to ONLINE, and are framed in a way that is suggestive of emoticons. The work explores the area between the individual and the masses in online culture, and gently pushes against the internet as an authoritative information source. Accompanying the work is a series of riso print posters.

The work has been realised in collaboration with Tim Jukes Design and was commissioned by UP Projects as part of This is Public Space, a series of web commissions. With extra special thanks to all the contributors.
