and part Two:
I am currently drafting an article called:
Location Location Location: Changing places, modes and meanings of streetart as digital imageBriefly it's about the use of online spaces to promote and share streetart and the ways in which the online space impacts on meanings of the art and how this then is brought back to the street.... that is to say, that I have seen how streetartists use Flickr to promote their work; to talk about their work; to show their work. They influence each other online; they see how flickr people respond to their work and and how they love to photograph it. And this can impact on what artists do next - and they certainly participate in photographing and 'collecting' the art in Flickr spaces. This whole process creates an interesting and dynamic archive online where images are replicated, arranged, labelled, organised and tagged. The art work becomes part of multiple narratives and acts differently for different people, meaning different things.
Themes in the article will be:
- Different modes and moving texts from one place to another
- Re-articulation of materiality
- Meanings change
- Presentations of identity
- Transforming spaces
- Interaction of items with environment and interaction of people with the art (or not)
- Changing over time
- Replications and memes
And, I forgot to mention, I found out about the Swoon videos, because another street artist, anaperu told me about it in a comment on this picture here. So there we are. More evidence, my dear Watson.
