Maciej Wisniewski takes the scroll bar, a basic unit of the online interface, then multiplies it and arranges it in a playful system, where some bars determine the movement of the rest, while others remain immobile. Wisniewski is an artist and programmer. A year after making this splash art, he launched netomat, an open, free-form and flexible alternative to traditional page-based HTML browsers and search engines that he called a "post-browser." It became the foundation of Wisniewski's software company. More than a formal study of scroll-bar design, Wisniewksi's splash art reflects his concern with the limitations of the browser interface by transposing a functional viewing tool to a nonfunctional context.
