Alain Vonck recently graduated with a degree in graphic design from a Paris university. “Ruins” is his masters thesis. The name stands for the “ruins” of the original Internet, coined to be “Web 1.0”. These digital ruins aren’t the stone structures of antiquity, but now live in digital form on hard drives and long forgotten servers. Digital works are fleeting and will disappear into the ether, unlike physical artifacts that will remain in one for or another. Can these works be revived?
