Scott Paterson's splash page confronts users with a cookie-collector that lets them select an identity ("who do you want to be?") before serving it back in a "stat.vhcl" that lists the time of visit, the visitor's name, the number of visits and the browser used. Like the stripes of black at the top and bottom of the page, the stat counter foregrounds the computer interface. Paterson provides an ironic counterpoint in the form of a bucolic field of sunflowers, but a close look shows that this image, too, highlights its own artifice: an abrupt, straight cut in each sunflower reveals that the same picture file has been pasted several times. Paterson is an artist, architect, and designer whose work explores the intersections of technology and physical space.
