Hi, I like the concept of the internet consisting of paper planes, shuttling information to different parts of the internet. I think the lack of a chain, helps this concept. This is because, often the internet is somewhat non-linear and layered. You could be exchanging paper airplanes with spotify and at the same time exchanging paper airplanes on instagram. Sometimes, a website goes down and your paper plane does not get there. I like your concept.

Thank you

Artist’s Statement: My concept for the Rebuild the Internet Project was to envision the Internet as one massive highway. The Highway signs that told drivers what food was available at the next exit would instead be advertising internet based food companies, like UberEats or DoorDash. Highway signs advertising entertainment, would be point Internet surfers to Youtube or Netflix. All the exit labels would be IP address, the internet’s version of addresses for websites. The intention was to explore how the Internet’s forms of Commerce and Navigation would be adapted in that the physical world. I accomplished this by drawing Road Signs that would be on the Highway version of the Internet, with pens and colored markers. Thank you
