The art of JODI simulates dead ends and errors, with additional tweaks of the interface to further frustrate the viewer. In %20wrong (RHIZOME--splash%20_%20JODI%20%_)
, a black strobe prevents users from even attempting to read cryptic lines of code on a gray field. The only constantly legible element is the spinning, quartered black-and-white disk that signified a delay on old Macintoshes. It functions as a piece of bait, since clicking on the rectangle around the disk sends users to Rhizome. Splash art is a natural medium for JODI, a collaboration by artists Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, who have never framed their work with texts and statements. Their projects consistently occupy the entire browser window.
