“Megacorp.” is a corporate conglomerate inspired by its equally powerful counterparts in science fiction. The artwork is based on a collection of fraudulent websites scraped from internet by the artist duo KairUs. These companies exist only virtually and are used by cyber criminals for phishing attacks or to support scam stories. The “Megacorp.” exists therefore as an umbrella company for subsidiary companies that are 100% dummy cooperations.

The functions of “Megacorp.” are presented in the form of company visuals. The archived websites are locally available allowing visitors to explore the current fake website repository. By examining the fake websites the artwork reflects both the imaginary and the real world 'megacorps', questioning centralization of power.
