Supporting The Institute for Y2K Aesthetics
Finding great 'Y2K aesthetic' content has become a passion of mine over the past two years, though the forgotten & lost-to-time nature of the period means it takes time to discover the really great examples! By donating, you help us with these goals:
- Supporting the time it takes to search through old archived sites, Google Books scans of magazines/books, Discogs, etc., and clean up the images.
- Buying more physical content, like books, magazines, and posters to scan and share with you guys! (I've got a Y2K Amazon wish list 100 books long)
- Potentially starting an account with pay sites that grant access to huge archives of advertising materials. (Coloribus, Advertolog)
- Getting in touch with designers and companies from the Y2K period, in order to get content that may have either never been uploaded online, or lost/corrupted over time.
In short, becoming a patron helps to both keep up the constant flow of great content, and allows us to purchase/access media that we otherwise wouldn't be able to afford.
