Most of us have an intimate connection to this space, a tool that keeps us connected but in turn supports that network and locates us within it. Here, the mobile device’s camera allows privileged back-door views into the virtual continuity that overlays and pierces the physical spaces where we work, live, shop, and pray. The space of the network is larger than any building envelope, paradoxically contained within while it extends ad infinitum. Team: Emily Abruzzo, Gerald Bodziak, Grace Jeong

I'M IN

Just beyond the surface of all built space is a vast network that is pervasive and continuous.
