THE KNOT.COM: A WEBSITE HISTORIOGRAPHY(2013)
video + research paper
This research project experiments with digital methods for online historical research and analyzes what these methods might reveal about cultural and web histories.
Animating thousands of screenshots scraped from the Wayback Machine of The Knot.com, the internet's most trafficked wedding website, the project surveys 13 years of the Knot's interface development. In doing so, it reveals the normative and commercial narratives that the site has perpetuated around marriage and the internet.
In collaboration with Jules Mataly & Mathias Schuh
