In an age of mass communication and social media, what sort of legacy are we – the creators of these digital footprints - leaving behind, and how will far-future generations interpret their remnants? What sort of myths will they create to explain them, and how will these stories transition over time? (footprints) seeks to reconnect people with the original medium of storytelling and myth-creation, enabling a moment where visitors can stop and be immersed in the present to create something for the next person to enjoy. An interactive transitional passage, (footprints) combines digital user-generated content with the context of the earliest of intimate human social experiences – the cave. The experience opens up the question about what it is to capture natural human engagement, and is it possible to do this in an authentic way?
Through this journey of discovery and surprise, content can be preserved, erased, recreated, distorted or added to with the next visitor’s contribution. It’s a reminder that the digital (footprints) we leave behind today will be reinterpreted by a future society’s frame of reference, and a myth will be born.
