is this virtual un/reality
this potent nothing of cyberspace has become an important
part of the world we inhabit. yet this virtual reality is
a reality without reality.
virtual reality refers to all the worlds that is constructed
through use of computer technology. cyberspace are brought
about as a a wide range of spaces in which we act and react;
communicate, play and work.
though cyberspace is a space which is not a space. if the
power is turned off the space and the reality created by the
software is gone. all that is left is hardware.
nothing also appears in the nonhierarchical overload of information
present on the web. this nothing is discussed in nothing.no's
and in the feature
of September 2001.
