Weightless (http://www.thomson-craighead.net/w/) is an online artwork where visitors are able navigate a database of animated web graphics, chat room transcripts and music MIDI files in a manner that in part references a television format. The anodyne music resemble a soundtrack while the animated graphics and chat-room logs act as picture and subtitling. As all this material was gathered and found online in 1998, the work also acts as a social document of early web usage.
