A goth on the manga base
Olia Lialina has for long been active in the preservation and restoration of websites from GeoCities, the once hugely popular early internet’s hosting service and web community. The “Morbid_curiosity14” website was created in early April 2003, and was abandoned on July 20th that same year. When the GeoCities platform was shuttered in 2009, all its contents - 38 million pages - were nearly lost, and so was “Morbid_curiosity14”. A group of archivist managed to rescue nearly a terabyte of pages prior to the shutdown, freely sharing these “pirated” data as a torrent. Olia Lialina began working with the archive as part of her reconsideration of the cultural value of “Digital Folklore”, the amateur web practices that make up a significant but much-derided part of internet culture. Lialina’s “Morbid_curiosity14” screencast is for all the girls who were online in early 2000s, making “dollz” and web pages.
