Internet Landscape - reportage from the net

Internet Landscapes
Reportages from the net

I take shots of the net.
At any given time I can catch the reality beyond the screen.
I can tell about places I have been.
I can seize the moment and focus on time and place.
I can record experiences.

Marco Cadioli

Internet is a place. A chance of another possible reality. A developing and growing place turning into a urban space.
It is increasing and moving boundary.
Internet is not just a bad time market.
It is a place we spend a lot of our time life.

Taking pictures from the net, it means take a look at its phenomenology.
It means an open-minded approach beyond any theory.
It means looking to this slice of reality and turn it into eternity.
It means seizing this process while still increasing. When places can come out from nowhere, born just from ideas and softwares.
And nowhere is the place they are going to.

These moving landscapes must be studied. They deserve to be talked about because it is worth history.
It is necessary to travel across this land to catch it.
