Ingrid Burrington (born 1987)[1] is a writer and artist based out of Brooklyn, New York. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art[2] and has since had her work appear in numerous publications including The Atlantic, The Nation, and San Francisco Arts Quarterly.[3] Burrington published Networks of New York: An Illustrated Field Guide to Urban Internet Infrastructure with Melville House Publishing in 2016.[4] She has also participated in numerous residencies, held teaching positions, and presented talks and workshops to the public. Burrington is currently represented as an artist by NOME,[1] an art gallery focused on raising awareness about current issues and based in Berlin. She is also a founding member of Deep Lab.[5]


Burrington's career, which began with a focus on art and data visualization, shifted toward the field of network infrastructure in 2013 after the leaking of the Snowden files. It was then that she became interested in what the inside of the internet looked like, beyond what the media was trying to depict.[6] This eventually lead Burrington to write her book, Networks of New York, where she uses over fifty illustrations to help readers understand and outline the urban Internet infrastructure.[4]

Over the course of Ingrid's career, she has received noteworthy grants and held positions with organizations such as:[3]

Burrington has also held adjunct teaching positions at Cooper Union (2018), Rhode Island School of Design (2017), and School for Poetic Computation (2015-2016).[3] As of spring 2020 she is involved in the Humans in Residence (HIRs) program within the NYU Tische School of The Arts.[7]
