Exploitable Environments is an environment, either it be real life or cyber web, that can be exploited in an artistic way. You probably have heard the phrase in a different way, like Facebook Profile Pic Hacks. But this type of art spans farther then just facebook, it spans farther then even just the internet with creative graffiti to 3D printing the environment around us can be exploited.


Its hard to say an origin of this type of art. Who was the first oil painter, or who was the first one to paint a picture of New York? We can say the origin came from Facebooks photos, or we can easily say it came from 4chan’s combos. Its probably impossible to pinpoint an origin.

Notable Examples

Examples can range from Cyberspace to the Internet and here are just a few.


Everyone knows 4chan combos. Was the sites main purpose to create combos? Did moot, or 2chans developers ever see anything like combos happening? Well then it is considered a hack. But hack is such a broad term these days. It used to be modifying something out of its main purpose but now most of the time it means unauthorized access and other illegal stuff. Not all hacks are illegal, and that’s what Exploitable Environments are… hacks.

3D Printer

Greg Petchkovsky, in 2012, made a video entry for a contest which he had to create an Instructable on how to make what he made. He used the environment as it was and turned it into art.


Over the years Facebook has changed its design many times. Here are just a few notable examples of Facebook.


Twitter with its new cover photo as brought in a simple version, like Facebooks.


Out of the realm of the internet, the real world does it too. Billboards using the environment with its billboard to create an ad… and art.
