From middle of February 2017 I spent three weeks travelling through South Africa following the SEACOM cable and visiting various other stations on the way.
I started my travel in Durban, where I met with different people involved with digital technology and the arts and conducted various interviews. From Durban I did trips to iSithumba, a rural village in KwaZulu-Natal, and Mtunzini, a coastal village where the SEACOM cable takes landfall. In Mtunzini I had a tour at the cable station and looked for traces of the cable on the beach. The last week of my travel I spent in Johannesburg where I visited the SEACOM main office and met with the artistic director of the International Symposium on Electronic Arts (ISEA) which will happen in Durban in 2018.

During the travel I wrote an extensive daily diary to reflect about my impressions and thoughts. Currently I am in the process of rewriting the texts into condensed descriptions of the important stations of my travel.
