“The network does not exist, it has to be created” *
The network inherently does not exist, one has to capture this complex event. What happens after you capture it? Network itself turns into a commodity? A power tool? A creative medium that is different than representation? I will discuss such questions in relation to my recent work: Meta-Markets (2007), MyPocket (2008), and recent network mapping projects (2008-2010).
