Jodi pioneered Web art in the mid-1990s. Jodi were among the first artists to investigate and subvert conventions of the Internet, computer programs and video and computer games. Radically disrupting the language of these systems, including interfaces, commands, errors and code, JODI stages extreme digital interventions that destabilize the relationship between computer technology and its users.
Jodi's SOD is a modification of the game Wolfenstein. You can actually attempt to play the game, but everything is scrampled. SOD is a modification or "hack" of id Software’s action game Wolfenstein 3D. The goal is to escape from a Nazi dungeon.
JODI's ongoing performance project, The Folksomy Project, takes YouTube as source material, with the artists utilizing custom software to select and manipulate user-generated videos from the popular website. Armed with a virtual "juke-box" of video clips, JODI focuses on YouTube users love-hate relationship with new technologies, from iPod love ballads to laptop smashing. As with much of JODI's work, The Folksomy Project is a study in how online systems (dis)function.
