Speculative open source webpage



An open-source webpage that encourages people to pin, add details, images, and share experiences of places that they have now lost because the place was destroyed or because they have moved.

This is a website where people can memorialize everyday places they have lost because they shut down, got destroyed, or the people had to move, e.g., cafes, old homes, shops, schools, and so on. It can extend to speak about more serious and urgent subjects such as gentrification and immigration.

The concept also speaks to the inherent bias of a map or an application like Google Maps that is entirely situated in the present and will only show you what is currently located at a particular spot. It also critiques the objectivity and dry rationality of a map.
