Internet culture's new paradigms required the redefinition of concepts which seemed so far to be acquired and stable, like the notion of place, existence, surface, space or time. Given the simultaneity and immediacity of the internet and its ability to substract itself from all spatial constraints, M.ark fixes in space and time the continuous flow of information in perpetual movement. M.ark is an entity dedicated to store and preserve Internet users generated content. It is a place, a locus, constantly growing, where informations and datas turn into space, making a new type of cathedral of the information and memory's age.
