Still Available \ Oliver Laric (2009)

In Still Available, Laric scanned the daily news and invented URLs based on the cultural, political and technological developments of the day. Purchased domains were then scratched off the list of ‘still available’ URLs, a scorecard for the artists’ accuracy in forecasting profitable domain squatting investments.

Building on earlier versions of the work, Laric worked with AND in 2009 to transport Still Available to Twitter, recasting it in a micro-blogging format that became a real-time snapshot of contemporary life.
