‘Dear www’ There Was and There Was Not confronts and vanquishes the power of the omnipresent video conferencing platforms. Linda Duvall & Avi Ratnayake’s www adventure sends users on a search through a network of connections by engaging with stories, sound and visual, and playing games.

The artists invite you to join them on the web as they traipse around informed failure/digital inertia.

The aim of the project was to capture the environment available to us within the 5KM limit, a restricted space yet one that can harness creativity.
