A visual research project that examines the relationship between infrastructure and landscape, specifically seeking ways in which humans have interacted with the natural environment.

Among all existing infrastructures, the digital one has captured the photographer's attention precisely because it lacks a direct and easily identifiable visual impact. In the contemporary world, the internet is perhaps the infrastructure that has most profoundly changed our way of life, yet it is also the one we perceive the least.

Oana Irina Ionasc divided the research into three parts. The first part involves analysis and exploration practices in the physical realm of the internet—a merging of the digital and real worlds where she explores hacking to learn and coexist within both realms. Finally, she delves into the artistic movement of Net art.

In her final project, she projects into the future with a question: What if plants could be used as storage space for our digital data?
