Nomadsoho was produced by Ainhoa Abreu Diaz, a Part 2 student at the University of Portsmouth. Her project addresses the fact that the rise of invisible information networks means that urban space loses its physical limits and becomes a field of flows and pulses in a state of perpetual change. It acts as a physical centre for virtual activity in the heart of London, providing rentable accommodation, technical equipment and assistance to facilitate the creation and editing of information. A constantly changing 4.6m-thick wall clad in SGG Priva-lite glass allows users to showcase their work. The digital plaza becomes a space where the 'invisible'world of information technology interacts with the fabric of the actual city. Diaz's tutors were Lorraine Farrelly and Alex Zambelli.
