Is there any internet left out there? Sometimes it’s easy to forget the web extends outside the highly controlled cyber mall we live in. Is it possible to create independent digital communities without the interference of the Big Tech? This project attempts to explore the vastness of the independent web by creating a personal website with the simplest HTML. The website acts as a cyber maze: the visitor is invited to follow hyperlink paths that lead deeper into the maze or deeper into the web. There is no right or wrong turn, the user is free to wander off the boundaries of the website and set their own www path. The project is a low-res attempt to reclaim personal digital experiences, decolonise the way we receive information online and explore if someone with no coding experience can take on their own hands their cyber existence, avoiding the constant monitoring of Big Tech algorithms.
