Interface, Exhibition & Artwork: Geocities, Deleted City and the Future of Interfaces to Digital Collections | The Signal
In 2009, a band of rogue digital preservationists called Archive Team did their best to collect and preserve Geocities. The resulting data has became the basis for at least two works of art: Deleted City and One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age. I think the story of this data set and these works offer insights into the future roles of cultural heritage organizations and their collections.

The Ghost of Geocities | One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age
Early web designers always had a clear/empty image file in the graphics folder of their projects. Usually it would be called clear.gif. Mine was — 0.gif. And most commonly it would be just 1 pixel of nothing. The one on Geocities is 10×10 pixels.

Clear gifs were irreplaceable in the world of pre-CSS layouts. Invisible and small graphics could be stretched in width and height, keeping visible elements of the page on desirable distance.
