A virtual space in a networked environment where identities are expressed. A "scape" presents an alternative to the physical landscape (and hierarchies of town/state/region/nation) from which we traditionally construct identities.
Wayne Gabardi writes,
"[Glocalization is marked by the] development of diverse, overlapping fields of global-local linkages ... [creating] a condition of globalized panlocality....what anthropologist Arjun Appadurai calls deterritorialized, global spatial 'scapes' (ethnoscapes, technoscapes, finanscapes, mediascapes, and ideoscapes)....(Wayne Gabardi, Negotiating Postmodernism, 33-34)
