THE KNOT.COM: A WEBSITE HISTORIOGRAPHY(2013)
paper: “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Knot: Analysing One of The Leading Wedding Websites“
This project experiments with digital methods for online historical research and analyzes what such methods might reveal not only about the history of the web, but about cultural history.
The Knot.com is the internet's most trafficked wedding website. Animating thousands of screenshots of the site scraped from the Wayback Machine and surveying 13 years of the Knot's history, the work reveals the evolving normative and commercial narratives not only of marriage, but of the internet.
