Project Greenwich

Duration  00:02:48

Project Greenwich is a website that allows people to create timelines of any subject they want to present chronologically. Using the site they could show the lifespan of an individual, how a historical event evolved, or how a place changed, for example. With Greenwich we are interested in researching how people think about time, how they go about the process of telling a story through time, and what it means to reflect on chronological content to think about the past.

Unlike content that is automatically created and stamped with a date, like status updates or blog posts, we are interested in how the act of sitting down and manually crafting a timeline encourages reflection, learning and provides insights into relationships between the different elements within it.
