Millennium Monument

Modality: Net Art

Resources: Web Site

Year: 2010


The piece is a Web page that shows the stopped first second of the century XXI while the real time lapses. The work dialogues about a digital monument to a digital age. The image is composed by zeros and one, in reference to the binary system that is the language on which the digital information runs. The date that is showed refers to the first second of the new millennium. It reminds in a contemplative way about the Y2K or the millennium bug, an event that symbolically marked the expectation about the new millennium as premonition for the remaining time.
