Internet Aerobics

Internet Aerobics

by Liat Berdugo, Assistant Professor, Art + Architecture, University of San Francisco

Filmed in a computer Lab, Internet Aerobics is a 20-minute aerobics workout routine about the internet, streaming to viewers through the internet. Aerobics props of long, blue ethernet cables are used, and moves embody multiple facets of online life, with packets of information speeding through wifi networks, routers, data centers, fiber optic cables — often times at different speeds due to the lack of net neutrality laws. This workout routine is an invitation to viewers to sweat along in front of their own browser tabs while thinking about and moving through the very makeup of the Internet, itself.
