Scrollbars is a series of installations and physical scrollbar-representations created by Dutch artist Jan Robert Leegte.
According to Jan Robert, most of us consider the scrollbar to be a virtual object - but in use it triggers reactions such as frustration, which suggests a subconscious acceptance of the inherent 'reality' of these objects.
Jan Robert Leegte has been exploring the sculptural properties of internet browsers and software, such as scrollbars, buttons and table borders since 1997.
