|Abstract:||I wanted to look at the next step from “experience captured” (Sontag, 1977) to the online art forms about ‘experience shared’ and therefore networked in our participatory culture, which conceptually inspired project two. My work will be experimental so that I can explore sharing (and communicating with) images and possibly audio on a particular subject or theme. My assertion is that we are innate communicators with a natural desire to connect with others. It has been customary for us to communicate and connect since ancient times – from drawings carved out in caves to tales told around communal fires and from Plato’s shadow-playing to religious preaching. We have always communicated/connected throughout history by reading books, listening to the radio and watching the television. Now we are embedded in the World Wide Web ‘public sphere’ where images have become a part of our sharing culture. Thus photo essays and photo sharing are other mediums to communicate and connect. Civic engagement to connect has shifted into a shared online socio, economic, cultural and political space. Historically we have developed from a local geographical community into the ‘digital commons’ - a global landscape of web 2.0 digital media (Merrin, 2008). My project plan is to research and evidence to inform my mobile phone capture idea. I wanted to understand mo-blogging and the method of producing a photo essay. According to an online photography and social media organisation creating a photo essay is an art form as well as journalistically communicating a message.|
