• ES IDEA Gik_ es un proyecto experimental creado en el marco de la Cátedra Wolkowicz, UBA 2016. Se trata de un canal especializado en ciencia ficción, orientado a fanáticos de la cultura en torno al espacio, la informática, la ciencia, etc… La manera en que opera es mediante el hackeo, sorprendiendo a los usuarios para linkearlos a su contenido. Los Idents se basan en tópicos de la ciencia ficción, como por ejemplo la conquista del espacio (Trump), el hombre con superpoderes (Messi), el Hombre vs. Máquina (Kaptcha) o el control (Yorke), relacionando cultura general con contenido específico del canal.

    EN IDEA Gik_* Is an experimental project that was created in Cátedra Wolkowicz, UBA 2016. It's a science fiction channel, aimed at people interested in space culture, computers and general science... It works by hacking, surprising users in order to direct them to it's content. Idents are based on topics from science fiction, such as space conquest (Trump ID), men with superpowers (Messi ID) or Man Vs. Machine (Kaptcha ID), linking general culture to specific content from the channel.

    *Originally the work was done in Spanish language, I translated it for this presentation. That is why the name Gik_ (a "loan" of "geek"), in Spanish sounds the same but is written differently.
