Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 17:35

‘Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors’ is a short documentary by filmmaker Ben Mendelson which offers viewers a glimpse inside one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of internet connectivity: 60 Hudson Street, New York.

Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors from Ben Mendelsohn on Vimeo.

Mendelson’s film not only shows us how the internet lives in our cities by revealing its hidden physical infrastructure, but also how it often inhabits buildings which have a long history in communications, as with 60 Hudson street, which was already a key hub for pre-existing communication networks.

Infact, the global map of internet in Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors demonstrates that the positioning of infrastructure within cities, and the patterns of cities themselves is more steadfast than we think.

Video duration about 10mins.
