Networked Nation: The Landscape of the Internet in America

In collaboration with the Center for Land Use Interpretation.

This exhibit looks at the roots, vines, and concrete of the internet, from AT&T through NSFnet, and the early commercial network access points in places like Tysons Corner, Virginia. It ends with the dedicated data centers being built in office parks and remote locations by the major internet companies today, to house the cloud. The electronic information of the world is embedded in the nation’s ground.

On view at CLUI LOS ANGELES through November 3, 2013. More at CLUI

This exhibit was supported by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
