Digital Archeology, An Exhibition of the Evolution of the Website

“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 (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).
