“The Network will be visualised”

The Synopsis :

Increasingly we live in a world which is marked by boundaries and difference. Our actions are categorised and labelled for reference, sign posting and evaluation. The Network breathes and crackles between these spaces, it makes the virtual tangible.

The Network overcomes these boundaries by supporting difference, tolerance and equity between individuals, machines and their actions. The Network is a production tool for artisans, a calibrating tool for media communicators and an ecological template for our continued survival and reinvention. It is as much a social mechanism as it is a cultural barometer for these plugged in data intensive times.
