What is it like if the web space is juxstaposed and expressed corresponding to this real world?

Sony Computer Science Laboratory underwent an unique installation project in which the laboratory’s own website Sony Drive is replaced in the real world.

The web site was expressed as in objects at the installation corresponding to the directory composition, hit numbers, data size, links etc. It is very amazing to see a virtual website in a real space.

“Now that everything is being dealt with the digital technology, it is meaningful to actually perceive and experience with our body and five senses to get to grips with what the cyber space is like” says Hiroaki Kitano from Sony Computer Science Laboratory.
