Websiteseeing is an automatic online virtual tour, taking viewers through the best sites the world wide web has to offer. 

Curated by artists, independent curators and people within the digital realm, Websiteseeing  displays a series of connected websites determined by a specific research interest, topic, or methodology. Shown as a continuously loading sequence chosen by the curator, the websites appear for a predetermined amount of time; if a website piques curiosity, the viewer has a few seconds to explore the page before the next one is loaded on their browser. Within this constraint, the websites presented act more akin to a ‘non-place’ than as spaces for the dissemination of information.
