Hello Process! shows a machine doing what it does best: deleting, copying and moving blocks of data. The computer functions as it usually does, as a black box theatre of processes. The only output comes through the printer, giving us clues about the activity inside. A file of 128 blocks is created. In this file, each block can be occupied by a small piece of code. Every piece of code has its own strategy. Some try to conquer as many blocks as possible; others simply target one specific piece of code or an unsuspecting neighbour. Processes are put on a stage like actors in a machine theatre. Each piece of code has a descriptive name and displays behaviour to match.
