On the first page
In 1991 the first website was created by Tim Berners-Lee, which lead to a new way of sharing and organizing information. Almost 30 years later there is a huge amount of data constantly accessible to us on different kinds of sites. But what is the proportion between available information of this sort and someone’s owned knowledge? And of what are we constantly aware? Do we even notice the changing of seasons?
The thesis of the exhibition is the possible existence of another endeavour before or parallel with the internet. According to that, relying on the recipient’s knowledge and affinity, it could be possible to transfer massive data by sending short, encoded messages. As though after reading an epigraph, we knew the content of the whole book. The presented interior is the scene of this wrecked research, an abandoned laboratory around halfway from a library to a server-room.
