A unique collection remains in our computer's cache after some days of navigation. In Weightless, we can examine part of these chance treasures found on Thomson and Craighead's disc by means of a light and user-friendly narrative interface.
An inherent question in all digital material is the marked scarcity of resources. The size and "weight" of images and sound is essential, as if they weighed something in the world of zeros and ones. The quantity of characters is of crucial importance in conversations and chats. But all of this is an economy of time more than of space. Of waiting time, of dead time. That is why this collection of short stories composed of light objects is, in one way, a refund to the navigator of tiny lost moments in time.
