Olia Lialina

In the last few years Olia Lialina has been exploring different strands of on-line grassroots creativity or "digital folklore", about which she edited an homonymous book. And her experiments continue: “Summer” is the name of the frailest GIF in the world, in which each frame is hosted on a different web page. Dragan Espenschied and Olia set up an automatic system that posts daily on a Tumblr blog images of now defunct Geocities homepages, rescuing the huge archive of the once massively popular and now forgotten platform (“One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age”). By the way, if you wish to stay in touch with Olia Lialina, you may be tempted to follow the link to her Facebook account that you will find in her personal homepage. Click it and you will jump in time to an impossible “what-if” version of Facebook from 1997!
