We refer to the internet as abstract from reality. By doing so, we obscure where

the real power lies.

The internet is in fact a network of physical cables and connections, a web of wires

enmeshing the world, connecting huge data centres to one another and eventually

to us. All are owned by someone, financed by someone, regulated by someone.

The System is a global tour of the architecture of the internet: who built it, who

funds it, who governs it, how it works. It shows how an invention once hailed as a

democratising force has concentrated power in places it already existed - that the

system, in other words, remains the same as it did before.
