Internet landfill. Dumping and consumption. Placemaking, expedited construction of "communities," abandonment. Physical and digital storage.
Libraries are places of conscious choice rather than passive consumption, and they still offer opportunity for exploration.
The internet is 100% man-made. There is no nature. What are we constructing in this “endless” space? How much more trash are we creating? What’s being destroyed or abandoned? Do these vacancies matter? Is constantly moving to new locations disruptive? Are communities real?
The internet does not exist separately. It is part of life; it cannot be ignored. It is an extension of man. The Internet with capital I does not exist. Only things exist on the thing we refer to as the internet: the seemingly boundless world inside boxed machines. But the internet is still bounded by country, language, culture, government—the same things that bound the physical world.
The world and “internet” are the same entity. The world has just expanded into another dimension.
