Web Safe 2k16, Live celebrates the completion of Web Safe 2k16, a literary/graphic project which explores our memories of the pre-broadband Internet and related technologies. The project made use of Lynda Weinman’s Web Safe color palette as a field of reference constraining a large and heterogeneous archive of personal recollections: 216 authors wrote 216 words each, inspired by a specific color in the web safe range. Starting on February 16th, WS2K16 began publishing one short story daily, authors were asked to consider a historical span of roughly 20 years,starting with the widespread availability of VGA monitors and modems in the early ‘80s, through O’Reilly Media’s Web 2.0 Conference (2004). Authors interpreted the prompt a number of ways, touching on sharing, censorship, anonymity, exposure, sexuality, love and fear. Tonight we'll come together to hear around 50 of them read live. WS2K16 is a project by Ben Sisto, Josephine Livingstone, and Joe Bernardi.
