Backspace

Here is the fabulous tidal ‘splash’ page for Backspace.org circa 1996 which was built at Obsolete by Dorian Fraser Moore. It’s a multi function interface to some tools, featuring some lovingly crafted dynamic scripts which track the tidal ebb and flow of the Thames, keep time and randomise a set of gif links to project pages so everyone get to feature on the front page of the website.

Whilst digging about was reminded of this page sporting 60 project review links which I had forgotten all about and written by our sole student intern Marleen (hi (-; ). She also operated a prototype blog we called ‘relay which she wrote in for a month before handing on to another subscriber. It’s currently not working but perhaps we can repair it soon.
