Embed a web server in a frog. Dunk httpd frog in formaldehyde. Let public control frog’s movements from any browser.
Experiments in Galvanism is the culmination of studio and gallery experiments in which a miniature computer is implanted into the dead body of a frog specimen. Akin to Damien Hirst’s bodies in formaldehyde, the frog is suspended in clear liquid contained in a glass cube, with a blue ethernet cable leading into its splayed abdomen. The computer stores a website that enables users to trigger physical movement in the corpse: the resulting movement can be seen in gallery, and through a live streaming webcamera.
It’s not pretty.

Alas poor Hopkin. Will you tell Terry?
Oh Jeb, you’re so right. I bet this is poor Hopkin, found at last. The humanity!
