Speaking about digital is talking about "digital space", systems and forms that build networks. Is internet and the whole of their networks a huge universe of constellations, with real worlds, continents, oceans, cities and sky scrapers? How do artists see these worlds? As a mere tangle of wires and cables that physically connect computers by land and air, or a series of highways where vehicles travel at the speed of light carrying packets of information? And what is in the centers of these roads? Stations, simple issue / receipt or many virtual cities inhabited by beings?This and much more represent the hidden world of the Internet in a network that extends endlessly around the world at a speed unstoppable.
