INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Network

For my network I wanted to continue from my last search of where cars are manufactured in the USA and to explore how many “American” vehicles are actually made here. I was able to find out that any country that contributes at least 15% of manufacturing has to be listed on the final product. With this information I was able to find out the top five car makers in the USA and how much of the product is American. From the data I was able to gather, largely in part from this article on msn.com, I found that the most american made cars are actually Toyota’s. Producing 4 of their top sellers in the states they average 72.5% of their parts made and assembled in the United States. I have made a map that documents the data I found which is a network of just how spread out car manufacturing is.
