Turbulence Commission: "[ openspace ] wilderness" by Andrew Lyman
http://turbulence.org/works/openspace

"[ openspace ] wilderness" is a virtual nature preserve for a deserted section of internet. It is inhabited by more than 6,000 blogs that have been silent for 6 or more years. Whereas abandoned neighborhoods of cities -- like Detroit  -- are undergoing rewilding (to restore and protect natural processes), what manner of new life is possible for vacated internet spaces? Visitors to "[ openspace ] wilderness" are invited to tag and explore its contents, and engage with the park's active population of predators and foragers. "[ openspace ] wilderness" is a finite and consumable space: it may be mapped and preserved, or overrun and overgrazed depending on the actions of its visitors.

"[ openspace ] wilderness" is a 2014 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
