Infrastructures enable certain types of mobility and transactions to take place. Our primary way of interacting with these infrastructures, however, is through an interface, whether it be a screen, object, or system. What happens when we look beyond their interfaces? What do we learn about the politics and power structures of the systems surrounding us?
