Each person constructs his/her image of the city. This image is made out of facts, memories, experiences, stories, news – mostly invisible data, and not only of architecture, buildings and streets.
SEARCHSCAPES: MANHATTAN” is an attempt to create a tridimensional map of Manhattan, using existing data from the web.
The objective is to compare the city’s “physical spaces” and “information spaces” (search results). This is an attempt to materialize information: to give it dimension and physicality.

“SEARCHSCAPES: MANHATTAN” was developed as a thesis project at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University.
