Eternity in an Hour

The Morris Worm virus incident in 1988 effectively brought the internet down for 72 hours. I believe that society has grown so fast since then, growing from a society with no dependency on the internet to us now, where individuals and entire industries depend on its continued operation. Currently we all live in “an age of noise” a fast world, bombarded with a constant flow of information where technology has shaped us. In revealing this incident I want to encourage people to slow and take more time for consideration, reflection and quiet via careful typographic treatment, referencing a slower era, in situ with other thematically relevant content. My project resulted in a two part publication; one concertina book thermally printed on a fax machine and one risographed—with additional fax paper posters.
