At a time when the boundaries between tangible and virtual reality have begun to blur, something that plays on my mind is a world where the internet and its ubiquitous culture no longer exist. In his book, New Dark Age, artist and writer James Bridle discusses how global warming threatens the servers that house the internet, and the wi-fi signals we depend on to access this network. Imagine if the internet suddenly became defunct and billions of cat videos and memes evaporated into the clouds. How would online culture be remembered historically? My practice speculates on the types of artefacts the contemporary world might leave behind for humanity in some not-so-distant future.
