Ginger Bombyx : life, death and mythology of a selfrepresentation

Abstract : Ginger Bombyx is a character I originally created as a being totally different to me. I wanted to better understand the presentation of self on the web and especially to question the existence. How shall one exist online? How does one become an individual? Over the years, this character took an existential density. Then it fell into lethargy. From this lethargy, interpreted as a death, has slowly emerged a spiritual existence, as if the character has been stabilized in a transcendental mythology.Today, a funeral stele has replaced the “living” homepages. The ancient personal websites are only available as web archives as a tribute to her memory. Over the years, these archives themselves are gradually disappearing. The Flash animations, pictures and hyperlinks are slowly disappearing. As if the web archives were unable to sustain a solid memory of the past.
