I just discovered an add-on for Firefox browser called Add-Art, which replaces ads within web pages with art (see below for a link to what is shown). It looks like a remix but I think it is more a symbiosis. It is an example of exploiting the modular and dynamic structure of web pages, which means that these pages are not one thing but a collection pulled together from different sources. The webpage is not changed but only the unwanted ads are being blocked. This leaves a space open to be filled with art. A symbiotic concept par excellence. Like any symbiotic relationship it needs constant work and adaptation to sustain a presence. Now that Firefox has ‘upgraded’ Add-Art needs to adapt and eek out their niche again.
