The Internet Does Not Exist f 1.4

Introduction 9

"Some people already be there: scammers and tricksters, the frazzled post-studio artist and the post-institutional independant militia, political dissidents and unruly journalists who know never to trust their maps. They know that contradictions don't resolve, rather you surf across them using empathy and solidarity, emotional blackmail, jokes, pranks, and vanguardism as norm. Our ability to traverse these contradictions may very well become the backbone of the global telecommunications network we used to think was an internet."

-Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, Anton Vidokle
