Artists Nicolas Maigret and Brendan Howell have teamed up to create The Pirate Cinema, a site-specific video installation which constantly downloads the most-viewed torrents at the time and projects them on to a screen. Since torrents aren't downloaded sequentially, the films are often streamed with their video or audio out of order and displayed across multiple screens in the room, resulting in an audio/visual collage representative of our illegal desires for media consumption in real-time.
