As another one of Extra Future’s [6-hour projects], I present the following: [Fullness][link], a web page which displays today’s date (22 February 2010). Each second that passes from the moment the page was made live will “age” it, blurring the text. As the viewer’s memory of the page ages and deteriorates so will the page itself, until eventually the text is entirely obscured and unreadable.
In about 5 years, the text will be one big smear. It will be be impossible to visually tell that it was ever text at all.
