Description :
This article examines networks, interfaces, and computer-generated images (CGIS) through learning from digital visual-isations of urban redevelopment projects in Doha, Qatar. It uses an actor-network theory understanding of ‘network’ and argue that the action done on and with CGIs as they are created takes place at a series of interfaces. These interfaces—between and among humans, software, and hardware—are where work is done both to create the CGI and to create the conditions for their circulation. It concludes by suggesting that geographers need to reconsider their understanding of digital images and be as attentive to the interfaces embedded in the image as to the CGI’s visual content.
