Although this article had a bunch of separate articles and videos in it, one stood out the most to me. This one was about The Creators Project, a globetrotting art installation that’s a collaboration between Intel, Vice and the numerous artists whose work is represented. Users would upload photos with a #creators tag on them and this wall would feature them continuously acting as an installation exhibit. A representative from Vice recorded an overall count of over 4,000 #creators hashtags in the Brooklyn exhibit itself. I love installation exhibits, they offer so much thinking, as does a painting, but it comes across as lively and full of messages. The fact that this was a interactive installation exhibit is incredible. Involving Instagram users’ photos they’ve taken themselves makes it ten times more interesting. It’s like art of other people’s art all collaborated together to make one large art piece that is ever changing.
Other than this story itself, the other ones have some interesting ideas in them. I didn’t read much into the others so if you find anything that stands out let me know! Check out http://thecreatorsproject.com/ to read more into what the project was all about!
The website I found this at is: http://mashable.com/2012/01/20/artists-social-digital-media/
Mashable.com is a great resource for a lot of different things. I’m not sure if it’s only regarding social media but when I was researching for a social media related paper, a lot of my searches came up with articles on Mashable, so check out that site too!
