Directions to Last Visitor (2011)

Broskoski’s Directions to Last Visitor reveals the ease with which websites can and do geographically locate users through their IP address. The website in turn uses this information, and the Google Maps API to provide users with driving directions to the last person to have visited the website. The site serves as a subversive action, revealing the dissolution of privacy, but also as a playful reminder of the physicality of the internet, and the underlying humanity.
