"Any power, no matter how supreme, totalitarian, ubiquitous, high-tech, democratic, and evasive, at the end has to land on the actual ground of the city and leave traces that are difficult to efface. This is why, unlike the web, the city as the actual space of our primary perception remains a very strategic site of action and counter-action. For any power the city is the most vital place to conquer and, at the same time, it is power’s most vulnerable form. But in order to critically frame the network, we would need to propose a radical reification of it. This would mean its transformation into a finite ‘thing’ among other finite things and not always see the network and its derivatives like something immaterial and invisible, without a form we can trace and change."
Pier Vittorio Aureli, in “Form” a conversation in Uncorporate Identity (262)
