Ars Electronica, 2002-2023

Unplugged was the theme of the 'Ars Electronica 2002' in Linz/Austria. As a result of the artistic examination of the topic, CNTRCPY™ created the 'unplugger' – an efficient device to prevent most communication and social interaction.

"Use your personal 'unplugger' to break some circuits. As soon as someone puts the 'unplugger' into a socket, a short-circuit occurs, and all electronic equipment, which is in this electric circuit, fails. By using this 'Mobile Socket-Virus' it is possible to transfer the surrounding into a state of conflict. Join the Art Of Unplugging!" (Unplugger Manifest)
