Reconnoitre was part of a series of works concerned with our experience of the network as environment whose structures are continuously re-shaping, accreting and decaying.

While Reconnoitre can be considered as a browser in that it allows the user to search for and access web sites, it is less concerned with the coherent display of information as with representing browsing as a behavioural activity.

Probably best described as a dysfunctional browser it seeks to enunciate our consumption of information as a journey of surprise, that seeks to reinstate the pleasure of browsing as technologically experienced d̩rive (drift) in its own right Рan ambient grazing of text.

The project was made in collaboration with Tom Corby.
