Welcome to NETWORKED, the Garden of Atacama. The concept of ‘landscape’ has been broadly dealt with by the arts and sciences of past centuries. However, due to the emergence of the digital realm, the word has acquired a different connotation that is linked to the idea of an entangled network of mutually dependent elements and their interconnections. This wholeness or connected network of digital data can be referred to as a ‘digital landscape’, and because of that, it also serves to better understand the natural phenomena that science and technology strive to acknowledge.
