Armin Linke - The Appearance of That Which Cannot Be Seen


For more than twenty years, Armin Linke has been photographing the effects of globalisation, the wholesale transformation of infrastructures, and the networking of the post-industrial society via digital information and communication technologies. His photographs show that the modern world is a massive profusion of data, where the material infrastructures, computer rooms, data highways, and server rooms, are largely invisible. For The Appearance of That Which Cannot Be Seen, Linke invited scientists and theoreticians to review and examine his picture archive. Ariella Azoulay, Bruno Latour, Peter Weibel, Mark Wigley, and Jan Zalasiewiczresponded with a variety of different readings.
