Abstract

Akhil Gupta and James Ferguson have observed a motif of discontinuousness in modernist organizations of space. The modern map, which splits the world into a number of discrete, separate formations best illustrates the modernist premise of discontinuity (1997). Gupta and Ferguson discern a pattern of interconnected spaces marking the relations between groups and cultures (1997). This reconceptualization of space as interconnected has been triggered by the connectivity of the electronic media and new information and communication technologies (ICT).
