Can we translate the space? It is, of course, a paradox, because the space in which such is "not" and, therefore, is not translatable. However, this translation represents the real challenge of our time, because by digital we are translating (even "transport") space "elsewhere". This translation is not a reproduction. On the contrary, it produces and invents new spaces by also asking us to question the very meaning of space, especially about its "number". Should we still talk about space or will we have to do with spaces instead? And how do digital spaces give us real, concrete spaces - the space we live in?
