In 1989, British scientist Tim Berners-Lee conceptualised the World Wide Web (WWW) whilst working at CERN. His paper ’Information Management: A Proposal’, noted as ‘vague but exciting’, initially sought to create a distributed information system for scientists. The proposal to use the internet to link one document directly to another expanded to become a universal & free ‘information space’ to share, communicate & collaborate: the World Wide Web.
The exhibition explores the origins, structures & consequences of the web using digital media, performance, live streaming & installations.
