64 Bits: An Exhibition of the Web’s Lost Past

The Dancing Baby, the Hamster Dance, 'Badger, Badger, Badger' there was a lot of weird shit going on in the early days of the internet. Taking us back in time, 64 Bits is an interactive recreation of the early years of the web, which hopes to tell the stories of the forgotten artist engineers that shaped today’s digital culture. See a working version of the first search engine, Archie, created by Alan Emtage; the work of Susan Kare - who designed the first microsoft playing cards and browse the very first website made in 1991. The exhibition also includes an open-door digital media archiving service, where artists and designers can bring in obsolete media to migrate inaccessible historical artwork to a modern format.
