OVERVIEW

An ambient webzine about seeing the cosmos within yourself. How is creating a website an act of world-making?


A handcoded website assignment that unites three texts around a common theme. We had to work around the constraint of no Javascript and figure out how to make an engaging web experience in purely vanila HTML/CSS.

TIMELINE
2 weeks, Feb 2023




I wanted my webzine to draw attention to the magic of the handbuilt web and the possibilites of an infinite canvas within the browswer.

I chose my 3 texts around the theme of the universe and self-reflection.

In the frame of the handmade website, these three texts feel poetic.








    It was challenging to balance intuitive navigation with open-ended experience






    I used written instructions revealed through hover interactions to guide users through the web experience 






    I handmade all the ASCII art, inspired by the constraints of the early internet that make it feel so much more intimate
