A critical cartography of the Internet and beyond

Over the past few years, Vladan Joler has been working (with the help of a network of data analysts, media theorists and cyber forensic experts) to bring to light some of the hidden layers of these systems. From the invisible algorithmic factory of Facebook to the visual and conceptual assemblage of a new extraction model, Joler’s representational tactics take us into the depths of today’s technological ecosystems. Drawing on the tradition of critical cartography, his maps attempt to unfold the black box of digital infrastructures. Thus, a seemingly simple and innocuous device like the Amazon Echo reports on the exploitation of natural and human  resources, material and immaterial forms of extractivism, AI taxonomy and classification systems.

Black Box Cartography contains:
n. 1 box 24x18x4 cm, hand screen printed
n. 1 booklet 23×16,5 cm, 112 pages, soft cover, english
n. 2 posters 92×66 cm (The Nooscope Manifested, New Extractivism)
