Atlas of the World Wide Web

Dafna Aizenberg

Posted—07/2013

The Digital Revolution and information era have radically changed every aspect of our lives, and continue to shape our social structure. Within that spectrum, the internet stands out as a unique phenomenon which captures our hearts and minds. We use it as an extension of ourselves, granting it access into our most inner circles in the process.

A major area where the impact of the internet is felt the most is the acceleration of globalization trends. As the world becomes smaller, physical borders seem to fade away. These trends, in turn, may lead us to consider today’s world map, drawn centuries ago by the global powers of the time, as obsolete. 

I do not believe that common maps have lost their relevance following the internet but rather need to be updated in order to reflect the new world order this age ushers in, just as other revolutions affected maps since ancient times.

My project sets out to draft a collection of maps, showcasing data about the internet gathered from it, reflecting the influence this technology has on our lives. Hopefully, the atlas before you will inspire meaningful insights on the state of global society in concepts transcending from the technological 
platform itself, such as poverty and wealth, or aggression and tolerance.

2013 marks the internet’s 30th anniversary, a point in time I think is appropriate to review the evolution of the “global village” - from its humble beginnings, its current state and to the future direction it is headed to.

Designed under the guidance of Yael Bogan. Final Project at the Department of Visual Communication,Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Israel.
