Web-based Archiving

This class focused on the role of digital media in archiving climate change. Students were asked to create an archive of climate change, however they interpreted these terms, whic would only be available on the Internet. They were given precedents from Kenneth Goldsmith, Katie Patterson, Cory Archangel, Lacan, Tyler Coburn and many more as a way to extend thinking about the archive and the politics of the archive. This was their prompt:

The 21st century is witness to the proliferation of both climate change and digital technology. What will future archives of climate change look like? How will information be organised and experienced? And what will we deem important enough to collect?

The archive of their archives can be found here: climatearchives.net
