Jonas Lund - “Selfsurfing”

Selfsurfing is a Chrome extension that creates a self-surfing, auto-updating clone of my browser in real time. My browser has a server extension installed which transmits the current state of my browser to a intermediate server, which holds all relevant information. This information is then picked up by the Selfsurfing extension.”

The project is sort of a continuation of/expansion upon his previous project, I’m Here And There, in which the artist created an extension that sends every website he’s currently viewing to a separate site. The list refreshes as soon as he visits a new website, serving as a mirror to his browser and life alike.
