Where the Internet Lives by Connie Zhou

View all 14 Photos

Because we typically treat the Google search engine as a magic box of infinite answers, it is hard to imagine what the physical workings behind Google look like. Connie Zhou, commissioned by the company, presents “Where the Internet Lives,” a series of photographs revealing the data servers, wiring, and inner workings that usually lie behind locked doors. This VIP view is beautiful, as the inherent order and repetition creates dimension and depth. In one photograph, pipes, as colorful as the Google logo itself, twist and turn like a modern, 2012 version of the old Windows screensaver. The images of the server rooms are just what one would imagine at the heart of Google. The blue, haunting LED glow is so vivid that you can almost hear the hum of the servers keeping the virtual world afloat.
