Abstract

This paper is a research on the theoretical and practical background for online newspaper project NewspaperBox, which presents a possible visual model for representing the collective use of a website in its form. Internet and cyberspace has been mainly defined through its utopian futures, and revolutionary anticipations. Under these views lies, our misconception of technological tools and deference to already dominant structures. States, mass media and corporations have come to define how we experience and use Internet in the control societies we live in. Databases and codes regulate user relations with and among this space and define the internal limitations of Internet as a recording medium. Through articulating a space-time for computer mediated communication to occur, this paper proposes an experience of cyberspace as a reconstructive process among users.
