Surfing the Internet and the world shrinks to the size of a village. The farthest regions are just one click away. But taking a closer look, the infinite freedom of a virtual space is just an illusion. Why does not even one single website from North Korea exist?

It transforms websites into digital pictures, enabling users to overcome internet censorship. Picidae allows a glance into another world and opens a new prospective.
