Poem for Echelon
Between the works submitted for Netopticon is Poem for Echelon from Jaka Zeleznikar. A netart work, inspired by both - the visual poetry and the poetry of code, aiming is to wake up the "Echelon" , a multinational network of spying on emails, telephone calls, fax, sms. The work proposes to copy the poem and to send it via email causing the consequent unavailing work of the Echelon system, triggered by the keywords considered by Echelon "suspicious", of which the poem is constructed. The work calls to an act of a collective and poetic subversion, a poetic interference in the operations of "controlling eye".
