A website is a material. A website is what you make of it. It’s the making of a world, accelerated. It’s intervention; inhabited; its creator; a tool; a site; a way of loving; a gathering. A website facilitates. It is ambient; breathing. It takes the shape of its container. It has infrastructure, a lifespan, its own creation myth. A website is an environment. It contains ecosystems. It is an act of translation. It has religions. A website is a parade; a memory; (re)publishing; a portal; a sea; a room; infinite; alive; an act of reclamation. A website is a manifestation of the promise of the internet.
