Textual and Visual Representations of the Internet
The Matrix (1999)
    There have been many popular representations of the Internet. Gibson first coined the term 'cyberspace' in his novel 'Neuromancer (1984). Key images of the Internet have been shown
most recently in The Matrix (1999; 2003). These representations show how the Internet is being envisioned by writers and film makers.
Visions of Cyberspace

Current visions of the Internet have now begun to move away from the purely fictional. Researchers are forming maps of ‘cyberspace’ which will help us to understand the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen. Not only do these 'cybermaps' help us navigate the world of online information, they are also artistic works created by authors from many different disciplines and from all corners of the world.
