Issue : overview

18 : Ghost : Archive, Evolution, Entropy

From obsolete technology and dead media masterpieces to current attempts to preserve decaying digital artworks, our very last issue channels the spirits of new media's dearly departed and raises a monument to their memory: The Shrine of Obsolete Technology imagines a future in which society has awoken to the importance of understanding and archiving media evolution and entropy. Issue 18: GHOST features articles from prominent new media archaeologists and archivists, and brand new interactives from some of our favourite past contributors. We also share fond remembrances from our Web production's three-year lifespan, and reflect upon its passage into digital history. "HorizonZero has ceased to evolve. It has become a ghost. But it is archived here - in this way it lives on."
