Project Details


DigiBreak redefines digital breakdowns, viewing them as everyday occurrences rather than crises requiring immediate solutions. We investigate how people experience and manage these breakdowns, observing their practices in digital periphery areas in Greenland and Denmark. The project offers key insights into how resilience and adaptability are fostered in highly digitised societies.

Layman's description

DigiBreak observes and interviews employees in small Danish businesses and citizens in satellite-dependent towns in Greenland, places which represent the periphery in Danish-Greenlandic digital systems. Additionally, we study authorities in both regions who provide digital breakdown guidance. Comparison between these sites offers practical and ethical insights into managing digital disruptions.
