Life Needs Internet aims to document how we currently feel about the Internet. This differs per culture, generation, country or even city; there is no global digital culture. While in 2013 39% of the world’s population had access to the Internet, writing a letter is still a technology that is roughly available to anyone. It’s a simple, low-cost and low-tech way to document thoughts and feelings. The global influence of the Internet is preserved through a traditional medium; each handwritten letter is a unique cultural artefact. Together these letters create an archaeological insight into digital culture.
