Internet Aesthetics: A Journey Beyond the Threshold

ALUO, Erjavčeva 23, Ljubljana

The digital space that extends beyond our screens is a vast territory that takes shape thanks to the contributions of countless intelligent entities. Over the years, the internet has absorbed an incalculable mass of ideas, feelings, and fears, turning into a gigantic, monstrous repository of human (and non-human) sensibility. This territory, despite being immaterial, has its own features. It’s a browsable map that contains landscapes, buildings, and rooms. The talk will explore the theme of space—natural and man-made—by analyzing its symbolic meaning within the framework of web culture, with particular reference to the realm of Internet Aesthetics.
