WHAT IS THE DMZ?

DMZ essay
LONDON.ZIP Digital Media Art In London mapped and compressed by Armin Medosch

In military terms, a DMZ or 'demilitarized zone' is an area forming a buffer or boundary where military activity is forbidden. Some demiltarized zones are kept in place for decades, becoming reappropriated as wildlife preserves, public parks and markets. In computer network terms, the DMZ is an area without the Firewalls which protect more critical systems. Typically, the DMZ is publicly accessible and carries our unrestricted internet requests and responses. The event and activities at Limehouse Town Hall are offered in a DMZ. It is the public environment we most often inhabit and within which we operate on a day to day basis when we use the internet, articulate community, contest authority, consume and create.

'DMZ articulates the space where communication, exchange and experiment are seeded, grown and harvested in public. The progress of inspirational ideologies, diverse influences and convergent energies map themselves onto the city terrain, reshaping the environment, rejuvenating hope and breeding optimism'. James Stevens, SPC.org
