“Data Free Zones (DFZ)” 2020

“Data Free Zones is a project mapping and marking physical territories that haven’t yet been virtually occupied by data providers.

DFZs usually occur either spontaneously or in geographic locations considered unprofitable.

A spontaneously occurring DFZ usually signals an area of land that is protected by physical obstacles such as mountains, rocks, concrete or bricks – actively blocking data signals.

A landscape considered unprofitable is often remote, short of financial resources or low priority and has therefore not yet been exploited.

With today’s ubiquitous network structures, the occurrence of DFZs are usually the result of remoteness in combination with physical obstacles; low signal being blocked by solid objects.
