Artist Statement:


Viewers are not usually aware that the web browser undergoes various processes when they open a single web page. The Weburette unveils the process through brewing a cocktail by mixing drops of different liquors where each liquor represents a specific process of the browser. Because the processes of each web page differently, each cocktail will be brewed differently as well, and have its own original taste and aroma. Therefore people can sense not only the visual representations of the web page, but also the taste and aroma.
