1A Cyberfeminist Manifesto for the 21st Century2016-10-27The manifesto text was originally circulated as a poster, in magazines, on email, and via LambdaMOO. For the re-enactment, a PDF version of the poster is available for download, the text can be requested by entering an email address on the Net Art Anthology page for this work, and a printed poster was distributed at New York City events and the New Museum store.

1Reabracadabra2016-03-11The artwork was originally distributed via the now-defunct Videotexto network, based on dumb Minitel terminals pioneered in France in the early 1980s. For the restoration, a legacy terminal is connected to custom hardware simulating the signal and transmission speed of the Minitel network. A re-creation of the artwork data is then streamed into the terminal. This restoration was created by the PAMAL research unit at l'Ecole Supérieure d'Art d'Avignon. Rhizome commissioned video documentation for Net Art Anthology.

2alpha 3.42017-09-21Stub data harvested from public web archives and photographic documentation was used to reconstruct several pages from the project website. It was possible to create a screenshot, but the collected data overall was too fragmentary to warrant public presentation.
64
2Life Sharing2017-09-27The artists uploaded all public files from their copy of the legacy server to a VM hosted by Rhizome. The custom directory listing designs could not be reproduced from this copy and were subsequently re-implemented. The GPS tracking component of the artwork relied on an external mapping service that has significantly changed since the creation of the artwork. The structure of map tiles cached by the artists was reverse-engineered to simulate the original behavior of displaying the artists' position at different points in time on a world map.
