Hindsight Guestbook
with Lan Zhang & Zihao Chen



Excerpt of the Guestbook, a living record of site activity.

In the Spring of 2020, gallery spaces across the world were closed, classes finished online, and our MFA thesis festival– once meant to be a physical show– went completely virtual.

As part of our online exhibition (Hindsight 2020), we created Hindsight Guestbooka procedural story of togetherness built inside the intesely digital show.

Every visitor to the festival website leaves anonymous data footprints. We use these footprints to build a story: one of people coming together from distant locations to share in learning, design, and art-making.

Anna Garbier contributed as concept design lead, and frontend development.
