Workshop with Lozana Rossenova - No prior knowledge of web archiving is required!

Join our free workshop with designer and researcher Lozana Rossenova and learn how to use the online tool Webrecorder to preserve digital social memory and to create personal online archives.

How is the value of the internet and all our interactions within it preserved over time? The answer to this question is usually left for corporations to formulate, but in this workshop you will be introduced to an innovative and accessible tool for user-driven web archiving, with which data can be both collectively shared and stored by individuals.

In partnership with Reading International.

 

Information about the day:

  • You will receive a quick overview of web archiving and the Webrecorder tool, an open-source project developed by Rhizome at the New Museum, New York.
  • Bring your own laptops to the workshop in order to create personal narratives with the Webrecorder tool, using found online content or even archive your own social media accounts.
  • If you choose to make your archives public, we can include them in the online publication documenting the residency of Lada Nakonechna at Reading International!
  • This workshop is part of Lada Nakonechna’s residency at the Abbey Ruins.
