A guide to the New East
Beyond the grid
Brave new world
A day in the online life of the new east

Every day spent online is a drift through oceans of visuals, each leaving a subtle trace on one’s consciousness. Uploaded, downloaded and shared images contribute to a blueprint of our online activity, a visual fibre of the virtual world. We’ve collected random images from blogs and websites from the new east to expose the visual tropes and dominant narratives of the area. No authorship, no sources, no consequences. Just browsing.
