Whois Ireland (2019)
(LED Display, Raspberry Pi)
As of January 2020, Ireland has over 13 million IPv4 (Internet Protocol) addresses assigned to it by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). These IP addresses route and direct most of our internet traffic and are registered to various state agencies and institutions, national companies and international corporations. Analysing these network topologies reveals not only traces of infrastructures past and obsolete, but also points towards the physical, digital and economic dominance of GAFAM (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft) in Ireland.
