The world’s largest environmental disaster was felt by no one. When the Chinese military recently demonstrated their anti-satellite missiles, deadly debris was scattered across our heavens further than any other manmade event in history. Our increasingly crowded skies are creating safety hazards that are proliferating without public awareness partially due to our inability to visualize and display the massive, transscalar real estate and activity of aerial technologies. Each industry has become adept at tracking its own assets yet none has succeeded in finding a model that represents the entire evolving techno-system in one visual strategy.

More about this publication?
  • Ubiquity is an international peer reviewed journal for creative and transdisciplinary practitioners interested in technologies, practices and behaviours that have the potential to radically transform human perspectives on the world. "Ubiquity", the ability to be everywhere at the same time, a potential historically attributed to the occult is now a common feature of the average mobile phone. The title refers explicitly to the advent of ubiquitous computing that has been hastened through the consumption of networked digital devices. The journal anticipates the consequences for design and research in a culture where everyone and everything is connected, and will offer a context for visual artists, designers, scientists and writers to consider how Ubiquity is transforming our relationship with the world.
