digital:Digital Earth is a fellowship programme for research and experimentation relating to material and immaterial aspects of digital reality. 

Our planet is encased in a gigantic mesh of fibre-optic cables and electromagnetic waves. Its surface is drilled for resources, used to generate the energy required for mining its digital skin for cryptocurrencies. 

Together, this all-pervasive technology and the entanglement of wires, devices, minerals and algorithms are creating numerous accidental structures. These structures are found above ground and below and saturate the entire planet – both physically and cybernetically.
