memorials for dead websites

art installation by Lenara Verle for Entretempo's Art Garden


I chose to feature in the memorials six sites to which I had a personal connection.

Altavista was my search engine of choice.
Geocities was a place where anybody could host their website, an invaluable resource when teaching people how to build websites.
Orkut was a social network extremely popular in Brazil, everybody I know was in there.
Beenz was a digital currency. I never used it, it died long before I started my current research into alternative currencies.
was a beautiful generative art project.
Word Magazine also hosted amazing art, games and experimental projects. (some of them are actually being recoded and in this way resurrected! đŸ™‚
