*M-System*

1998

participatory web project

The participatory web project M-system offers a simple abstract reality of the Prague subway transportation system wherein an individual trace of participation can be entered in order to collectively change the otherwise naturally strict map of the subway net. The participator is asked to proceed through several levels of selection with increasing detail until a concrete place on the map may be defined and recolored. The available colour spectrum is randomly generated and then with each selection step reduced till there are only two random colours left at the bottom of the system where they may be used to mark the individual place in the system.
