“Digital Archeology” is an exhibition of the evolution of the website that will be on display at Internet Week New York, June 6 through 9, 2011 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Presented by the Story Worldwide ad agency, the exhibition features 28 websites running on period-appropriate software and hardware.
The centerpiece of the exhibit is a display of The Project (1991), which reunites the first-ever website created by World Wide Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee, with the pioneering NeXT Cube and the Nexus browser.
Other highlights include leading lights from New York City’s early digital scene such as Word.com (1995), one of the Web’s first e-zines, and The Blue Dot (1995), an art and design playground by pioneering online agency Razorfish. The exhibit also features experimental browser The Web Stalker (1997) and the self-destructing website for the film “Requiem for a Dream” (2000).
