BitRot is an exploration of the concept of digital decay. Virtual
environments and digital objects are created to be pristine and
eternal -- the effects of time do not harm them, but only render
them obsolete. Decay, rot, and death have no meaning, nor does
any kind of change. BitRot introduces these fundamental
characteristics of the physical world into the virtual realm by
both simulating material decay and introducing pure digital decay
in the form of algorithmic decomposition on the data itself.
