Networks of New York by Ingrid Burrington is a field guide to finding the internet on the streets of Manhattan. It documents different signs of buried network infrastructure and easily overlooked networked objects (sensors, cameras, cell towers, and more), as well as some major carrier hotels in New York City.
Originally produced as a website and a self-published book while a resident at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, it was later revised and expanded for Melville House Press, where I got to work with some really fantastic people.
Article Public Domain 4.0 by Marleen Stikker in publication Digital Public Space
“We live in the time of “interreality”, of mixed reality – there is interference between the programmed and the physical space. Only the mechanisms are no longer visible, you cannot observe what is happening. We need to determine what to do with this dimension of measurable things around us. It even affects the notion of our bodies and the notion of the self. The blinking cursor is not longer outside of us. We are the cursor. It is internalised, as it were – as a third, additional domain.
Nowadays, these three notions of public domain coexists: the public domain in the physical space, the public domain in Public Domain 4.0 cyberspace and the third emerging public domain that extends cyberspace into the physical space. Lets call this the coded space.”

The publication gathers a range of short explorations of the idea of the Digital Public Space. The central vision of the Digital Public Space is to give everyone everywhere unrestricted access to an open resource of culture and knowledge. This vision has emerged from ideas around building platforms for engagement around cultural archives to become something wider, which this publication is seeking to hone and explore.
