Academy of Margins workshop - Site-specific

Site-specific: an introduction to making placeful websites
a workshop guided by Benjamin Earl and Kirsten Spruit

Making placeful websites

This workshop offers an entry into coding and hosting a website, in particular one that is placeful and situated. While the internet allows us to connect to other locations, it can sometimes feel like a placeless network saturated by sites and platforms that foster self-promotion through homogeneous templates. Through coding websites “by hand” and considering the conditions and environments they are made in or originating from, we try to infuse the web with a sense of place.

Taking the idea of creating a website for a specific place as a starting point, these two half-days will revolve around learning how to use basic HTML and CSS, and how to host your website online in connection to the place it refers to. We will end the workshop with a LAN party, where we form the network ourselves, for those physically present in Topolò, to tour our situated and placeful websites.

How to join?

You can join both irl in Topolove and online on zoom (or a similar platform, we'll let you know which)!
