Palimpsest

Groups

A palimpsest is a manuscript consisting of a later writing superimposed upon an original writing. This name has been borrowed for the title of this project that aims to superimpose layers of recorded social interaction and present them as a single image. In contrast to conferencing tools and portals that enable chance encounters between distant locations, the palimpsest facilitates chance encounters between different points in time.
