    Keywords: Visualization, Mapping, Internet, Interactive, Public Space

    City to City is an interactive artwork that visualizes the geography of the internet, from place to place, and allows individuals to see their own unique participation in it. Users conduct their online activities and observe their own inquiries, distinguished by color graphics and sound, as messages travel from their points of origin to their destinations. Participants are able to see the visible and distinctive paths that compose the larger, collective global internet. City to City’s visualizations reveal the map of online traffic along with our dependency upon the invisible infrastructure of place to place connections; this infrastructure forms the foundation for all of our daily online activity.
