As data consumption accelerates and virtual worlds are built in real time, questions arise about how the internet spatializes in the physical world and how data disparities are manifested.

“LinkNYC” kiosks were offered by the city of New York to serve diverse communities with seemingly free WiFi. However, their censorship program and trade-off rules hint at a different virtual world than is being presented.

This project investigates how a truly free internet zone could be claimed in New York City. It explores how the access to free information points and the ramifications of their radius would change the neighborhood along Broadway and transform it into a new networked community that lives in a precarious symbiosis with tech.
