Writing Cure is a web platform that encourages reflection on commonly used digital communication tools through storytelling. Based on journal entries written during the pandemic about online and real-life encounters, it contemplates the affects of online communication on human relationships with each other and with their surrounding. Furthermore, it examines the way a website can be used as an expressive and personal space.
The project is conceived as web theatre, sharing narratives through the layers of the website. The stage is the screen/window, the script is the code, the actors are the elements of the platform, the choreography is the interaction and the narrator lives in the chat and guides your way.
The project is best experienced on a large screen using Chrome.
