Data Rush

Henrik Spohler

0/1 Dataflow (2000-2001)

The places where the real heart of our information society beats are in fact the opposite of it in terms of appearance. In the uniform, light grey spaces even the colour of the Ethernet cables offers no indication as to which direction the processed data comes from, let alone where it is going. The processes at play here are just as invisible as in the synapses of the human brain. This abstraction makes the photographs an allegory of the interplay and equivalence of data in the digital era.
