Bad Keys is a code art work by Tim Brook in collaboration with Caren Florance.
It is presented in two parts: a digital video loop and an interactive installation.
Each sequence in the digital video traces the path on a qwerty keyboard
made by the fingers of an incel as he types a hateful comment about a woman.
The list of insults was compiled by Caren Florance from live posts she found on the Web.
The interactive component allows viewers uncensored access to a keyboard that produces no text;
instead, each keystroke adds to a slowly-fading path on the screen.
