From E–Commerce To Cyberattacks, An Atlas Of The Digital Universe

Seeking answers to life's most complex questions in the pages of Homer's Iliad seems like an ancient luxury, especially when they can be so easily obtained with a five–second web search. The Internet gods have both blessed and cursed us an insatiable palate for instant gratification––and browser speeds are only increasing with time. Designer Dafna Aizenberg brings this very digital evolution to life in her 120–page Atlas of the World Wide Web, which outlines the global evolution of Internet trends, social networking to the growing density of e–commerce. Her choice of illustrating these modern practices with a traditional means of book–of–maps representation is one that she hopes creates a feeling of nostalgia, she tells Co.Design, "taking readers back to childhood, a time when most of us were enchanted by big books with huge maps of the world." Among her findings is a surge in the concentration of Facebook users in the U.S. and India between 2009 and 2012––not unexpected, but not usually portrayed in such an appealing way as it is here, with deepening splashes of Mark Zuckerbergian blue. Intricate constellations of simple yet frighteningly dark lines illustrate the growing rate of cyber attacks in Chile and Argentina.Read Full Story     Continue reading at 'Fast Company'
