Bangkok Cable Ways

One of the reasons we underestimate the sheer physical mass of our power and information networks is that they're hidden from view. But not in Bangkok. The German photographer Thomas Kalak has spent ten years decade capturing images like these. They feature in an exhibiton at Munster Art Museum from 19 March to 3 July.

These images are powerful, however they made me think about where the urban cities of the world are headed. Do we really want to live surrounded and buried under these webs of cable wires symbolically representing our ever growing power and information networks?
