Network Filter Box

Matt Richardson

The Network Filter box is a computer accessory for users to apply customized filters to their Internet browsing experience, ensuring that their positions are never challenged.

These works influenced the process of creating this work:

Tool to Deceive and Slaughter (2009) by Caleb Larsen
Dislocation of Intimacy (1998) by Ken Goldberg, Bob Farzin, and the Alpha Lab
PirateBox by David Darts
LibaryBox by Jason Griffey

It's a USB box with six switches, connected to a computer and screen. There's a keyboard and mouse for the user to drive the setup and switch the switches. The user can log into a web based back end to change the settings of each switch.
