[epidemiC] is a network of people working in sectors as diverse as art, computer science, anthropology, communication, history, and economy. [epidemiC] explores the phenomena arising from the intrusion of computer science's cultural behaviors into traditional ones. In 2001, their work VIRII VIRUS VIREN VIRY: The Beauty of the Source Code was exhibited at D-I-N-A (digital_is_not_analog.01) in Bologna, Italy, and their projects HTML.Reality.b.html, Ready-Made Virus and biennale.py (both in collaboration with 0100101110101101.ORG) were included in the Bienal de Valencia, Spain, and the 49th Venice Biennale, respectively. The project downJones sendMail - Is It Viral Marketing? was featured at digital_is_not_analog.02 (Milano), and as part of the exhibition "I love you - computer_viruses_hacker_culture" at the Museum of Applied Arts Frankfurt (MAK), Frankfurt (2002), [epidemiC] released AntiMafia - The Action Sharing, an 'activism productivity tool.' AntiMafia is a Windows-based program for the co-ordination of associative actions and its user interface allows for the creation of social events based upon the co-operation of other peer computers operating the program. The team was also responsible for the exhibition concept of adonnaM.mp3 - File Sharing, the Hidden Revolution in the Internet at MAK, Frankfurt.
