Conocí [2016]

I Met, is an artwork by On Kawara that presents us daily typewritten pages with lists of people’s names whom the artist met on a specific day, and that was dated at the bottom of the sheet. Zea's Conocí (I met) is an interpretation of Kawara's, in which, a computer plugged into the Internet writes down a list of IP addresses of other computers every second which it is communicating at that precise moment, dated with the exact date and time in Epoch. In the following process, each page is printed out using a dot matrix printer, then is binded with other 61 additional folios. At the same time, the binders are grouped by six, storing a total of 366 pages on one shelf.
