Milan-based artist Biancoshock has initiated a project called “Web 0.0”, with the aim to emphasise that people can lead their lives just fine without the use of the ‘Internet’. Through these photographs, Biancoshock’s creativity speaks of a story that goes beyond words…
If you visit Civitacampomarano, Italy, a small village with nearly 400 people, you’ll see a low-tech version of popular Web services like an old metal mailbox as Gmail, a community bulletin board as Facebook, a bunch of chairs arranged around a TV as YouTube, and a public bench for kissing as Tinder.
This village is extremely low on internet and cell-phone connections as it is snuggled high up in the mountains. Internet services essentially aim to bring communities together but with growing use of the world-wide-web, people are, in reality, getting isolated from real social interaction.
Civitacampomarano is doing just fine without being ‘logged in’ all the time.
