Driscoll’s “Color Coded: Mendi + Keith Obadike’s Black.Net.Art Actions and the Language of Computer Networks” (The Black Scholar, Vol 47, No. 3, 2017) #BlackCodeStudies

Driscoll, Megan. “Color Coded: Mendi + Keith Obadike’s Black.Net.Art Actions and the Language of Computer Networks.” Black Code: Special Issue of The Black Scholar, Edited by Jessica Marie Johnson and Mark Anthony Neal, 47, no. 3 (July 3, 2017): 56–67.

“The Interaction of Coloreds is one of three net art projects that make up the Obadikes’ Black.Net.Art Actions. Produced between 2001 and 2003, the suite deconstructs the language of color on the internet, examining how it reflects the persistence of identity categories like race, gender, sexuality, and class. Together, the works refuse claims for the disembodiment of the internet-browsing subject, while demonstrating how the values communicated by the social coding of language penetrate into the network itself.”
