This collage of crazy is an art installation, created by Nicolas Maigret, who wanted to recreate visually what “torrenting” really looked like. The video itself is a collage of quick clips that fly across the screen and flash a partial IP address and location, before heading on to the next random video. TorrentFreak details some of the behind-the-scenes on how Maigret has access to the information:
Somewhere in a datacenter in Austria there’s a dedicated machine that has only one mission: download and share the 100 most popular files on BitTorrent and turn these bits and pieces into a piece of art.
