“That’s all it is: information. Even a simulated experience or a dream; simultaneous reality and fantasy. Any way you look at it, all the information that a person accumulates in a lifetime is just a drop in the bucket.”
Information has always traveled through the streets, be they real or are located in the ether. In the digital age, the informations can be transmit without the help of physical streets, very rapidly (light speed 300,000 km / s) with costs virtually absent.
The diptychs are topographies of real metropolis, real hubs of human culture and topographies of places in silicon, today’s systems of transmission of informations. Where the data travels? The messenger, depicted in antiquity with Hermes, walked the streets in unprecedented speed to deliver information. Today Hermes is located in the ether, a fully-fledged god , not real but a perceptible entity.
