Punk Rock Timeline

© Colleen McKeracher 2013

Punk Rock is a musical genre that has evolved out of the counterculture of the 60’s and has grown and diversified, strongly influencing the modern musical genres of today. This project visualizes the life of punk rock through the bands that most embodied the movement. The observer will gain insight into the culture of punk rock through a timeline that organizes the punk into a (more or less) linear story. In the live version you can scroll over the electrocardiogram-style blips to see the album title and link through to the corresponding Wikipedia entry.

I'm a historian, curator, teacher and designer living in Ottawa. In 2003 I completed a Harvard doctoral dissertation on the 18thC origins of the catalogue raisonné. Then I taught at Stanford University in California from 2003 to 2005. For the next six years I was Curator of European & American Art at the National Gallery of Canada. These days I'm involved in a variety of research, teaching, advocacy and design projects.
