"'History of the internet' is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from time-sharing to file-sharing, from arpanet to internet.
The history is told with help of the PICOL icons, which are also a part of my diploma."

[An elegant 2D animation illustrating aspects of the development of the Internet. Despite its strong visual aesthetic however the project offers little more than the rather familiar tale oft told of technological innovation and development. It overlooks the profound social and cultural factors that initially gave rise to the development of the Internet and that has enabled it grow in significance since.]
