A Giddiness Best Left Unsaid, explores the form of information. From the hot mess of cables, cooling tanks, exhaust fans, backup diesel engines and industrial grade lead-acid batteries that make up the modern server farm, to the more ethereal spaces inhabited by lofty visions and internet sex sprites, the more we learn about the aesthetics of computing, the weirder it gets.
