One piece straight up made our jaws drop–”Seeing Networks in New York: a Field Guide to Internet Infrastructure,” by Ingrid Burrington, a 2014 resident at Eyebeam, was a precise, minimally detailed hand-drawn map accompanied by a few printed booklets. The two-part piece functions as a guide to what are effectively hidden, but not exactly secret internet, telecommunications, or surveillance infrastructural elements in and around the Chelsea neighborhood.
