In 2014, Geneva History and Archeology Society suggested us to take part in the creation of a time capsule to be opened in fifty years. This request raised questions relating to different fields, especially our contemporary use of the internet, as individuals and as witnesses of our time.
These leaflets were designed as a result, gathering internet screenshots and browsing history, and explained thanks to annotated tracing papers. They simultaneously display current web aesthetics, the way internet was browsed in 2014, the most commonly visited websites, among other habits.
Creating a materialized and annotated history is also a way to provide a lot of information on personal identities, and thus reflects our reality and everyday life back in time in a subjective manner.
This project aims to bring a personal perspective on digital lives in 2014, and will be revealed in 2064.
