raw, unfiltered, incomprehensible data; bits and bytes traveling through networks;
the chaos of turning on all the appliances in your house simultaneously;
the inability to synthesize information from this data collage;

(coming soon)
misprocessed information; disinformation; the bureaucratic labyrinth;
the phone system that imprisons the caller in agonizing loops;
the propaganda machine of modern advertising; the political manipulation of knowledge;

iKatun’s Paradise is based on Dante’s Paradise from the Divine Comedy, however, this Paradise
is not about perfect morality but about perfect information.
iKatun’s Paradise alludes to instant availability and perfect knowledge; a single data point of infinite density;
the faultless model of information to which all media systems aspire;
the space where entropy does not exist.
