Maria Vorobjova’s artistic practice weaves the threads of play and care between collective joy and online communities, particularly within the realm of early cyberculture. By collecting, constructing and curating with IRL-URL artefacts, she forges boundless dreamscapes and techgnostic utopias. When she’s not building little virtual worlds, she is working as a freelance designer. Welcome To My HomePage is an interactive installation that explores how the maximalist construction and idiosyncratic vernacular of web 1.0 space, unflattened by the vectorised bulldozer of corporate design, can provide subversive refuge from the imposing gentrification of contemporary social media architecture.

Maria Vorobjova (1996) is a London-based RCA graduate now working as a freelance graphic artist and art director, creating work in the fields of music, fashion, gaming and underground culture. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker, Dazed, The Face and People of Print, and her clients/collaborators include Boiler Room, NTS, Off World Live, En Masse Festival, BRICKS magazine and the record label Hypercolour.

We are grateful for the kind support of The Computer History Museum Ljubljana.
