  ik.rocks.it Introduction

Isobel Knowles’ ik.rocks.it evolved over the years 1999–2005 as an online gallery of her animation and interactive artwork.

It is a website that contains no writing, lists, menus, sidebars, headings or site maps. Its contents are not immediately accessible, provoking the visitor to initiate interaction and explore the site.

Take a leisurely walk down the shockwave shopping strip. Download icons from the icon stall, play with pets at the petstore and watch the breakdancers do their stuff on the pavement. Inspired by Sesame Street and pixel art, Knowles aims to recapture our childlike curiosity, with animations that are not always as innocent as we would like childhood to be.

ik.rocks.it is presented in conjunction with the Children’s Festival 2005.

ik.rocks.it. will be exhibited at spatial from 24 September – 2 December 2005.
