Useless websites or internet art? The art of the webfolly by Hay Kranen
A folly is a costly ornamental building with no practical purpose, or a foolish act, idea, or practice. Webfollies are the 21st-century, internet-friendly version of this concept. Digital islands of art, experiments and silly ideas. Think short funny pointless games, single-serving websites, or confusing digital experiences. A webfolly can be virtually anything, the only thing that they have in common is that they serve no practical purpose and drift more towards art than entertainment. In this talk i will showcase some of the best webfollies on the web, talk about the creation process and launch a platform to gather these new forms of digital art.
