De-centralized Web?

The Big Kiss (2008) and Angry Women (2012) are shown together with Michael Szpakowski’s, House and Garden (2009) during the Decentralized Web Summit in San Fransisco.

August 1st and 2nd,
San Francisco Mint,
88 5th Street, San Francisco, CA.

For Ruth Catlow, who curated Furtherfield’s screening room as a part of the “creative track” programmed by Sam Hart and Mindy Seu for DWS, these 3 artworks exemplify an attitude to artmaking particular to the Web before the great centralisation – these are works that speak from the origins of the P2P movement, a time in which communities began to form around new modes of networked interaction.

The Internet Archive’s Decentralized Web Summit is dedicated to creating the web we want [and the web we deserve]. We are convening those who want to build a web that…
Remembers. Forgets. That’s safe. That cares about people. That’s a marketplace. That’s a public square. That learns. That’s magical. That’s fun. A web with many winners. A web that’s locked open for good.
