Internet Landscapes is a group exhibition of artists thinking critically about the Internet as a defining moment in our place in history. Through varied media, including videos, websites, books, prints and etchings, a common theme is the demystification of the network. The work is a result of a dialog on Internet infrastructure, net.art, art and activism, Post-Internet art, hacking practices and personal narratives. Together, the pieces aim to visualize physical, societal and personal connections to the Internet, revealing a path towards becoming more empowered users, administrators and networked citizens.
Internet Landscapes is the product of a studio course by the same name taught by Evan Roth at Parsons Paris, where, for 15 weeks, students could only speak to servers using the terminal.
