Occupy.Here Hopes to Create a Free, Open, Unregulated Community Without the Internet
Dan Phiffer, a New York-based web designer and member of art and technology collective, Future Archaeology, is one of the ten recipients of the Rhizome Commission Program Grants for 2012, which were announced on July 16, to continue his work on Occupy.here. Rhizome, for those who may not know, is a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to new art practices engaging technology. Occupy.here uses a wifi router to create a network for discussion for only a locale audience. By bypassing the traditional internet, Phiffer is working to make a free, open, unregulated and community based platform for exchange.
