In this introductory studio course, participants explore the world wide web as an opportunity for self-publishing. We’ll understand the web’s history and original design as a decentralized system for publishing on one’s own terms. But it’s easy to forget this, as today the corporate and platformed web captures and sells our data and attention. Through hands-on exercises and projects, this course aims to demystify the web, removing barriers to basic web coding and publishing by focusing on the foundational skills in making websites with HTML and CSS. We’ll remember what makes a web a web: links made by humans.
