We consider the Internet as something floating in the air, impalpable, and ethereal. The series reveals a small piece of the massive infrastructure that stands behind it. Bursting in the half-light basement the nerveless flash light makes the chaotic mass of wires come to the surface.
A second set of images produced using Google Street View shows the facades of New York’s data centers. These blind sightless buildings host the terminal and junction points of these immense infrastructures that physically innervate the earth’s surface and that exist in a condition of non-visibility, hidden behind blind windows rather than buried or submerged at the bottom of the oceans.
The visible emerges in the form of a constant flow of data, information, and images. We tend to imagine this restless flux as without a body, without weight, but the abstract always shows its roots in the tangible.
