In this hybrid IRL/URL embroidery session at Control Shift Festival, feline creatures of the internet gathered to decide upon a network structure that’s good for every cat! We played as cats and addressed each other via different rules. On our agenda were three different network types: Centralized, Decentralized and Distributed. The aim was to find out about network ‘purrtocols’ (protocols) together online, through the act of sewing and MIAU(meow)-ing as a group!
Miau ID is an embroidery game by MELT (Loren Britton & Isabel Paehr) and based on the workshop Code, Layers, Infrastructures originally convened by Loren Britton, Kamran Behrouz, Isabel Paehr and Jörn Röder.
