Shaping the Shapeless Web:

This series aims to guide us away from repetitive design patterns towards dimensionality and depth.

What is the shape of the web? How do you paint a picture of the web? We often forget that it is the screen, and not the web itself, that is rectangular. The Internet is amorphous and edgeless; it is shapeless. But in order to make sense of the web, we must be able to contain it to some degree, so we apply a shape; a visual to this shapeless virtual space.

Easy access to the Internet has brought with it mass surveillance and an emphasis on curation.
