Entry Description

The Internet Warriors. Who are the people that get so angry online? Why do so many of them choose to harass people, threaten people, and stretch the freedom of speech to its limits? More than a third of us participate in online debates, according to research done by Pew Research Centre. During the past three years, documentarist Kyrre Lien has met some of the most active online commenters across the world. Meet The Internet Warriors – in their own cave. A limited edition book produced by designer Jørn Aagaard , signed by Kyrre Lien was produced to the launch of the project, that also was featured as an exhibition, and a photo essay published in several international outlets across the globe. The book consists of all of the pictures and interviews with The Internet Warriors, and an essay by The New York Times columnist Stephen Marche. The book is printed on 150g Munken Lynx Rough.
