Do It With Others and Experimental Interaction

Do It With Others (DIWO) is a variation on Do It Yourself (DIY) where activity is now shared through participatory media.

In this approach, peers connect and collaborate, creating their own structures, using either digital networks or shared physical environments, making an art that is both made and distributed across a network.

You have made a number of bold statements here! I particularly like this comment:
It could even be said that art is not interactive without DIWO.
My advice though is that when you make these kind of declarative statements, that you find more effective ways to support them. Why, for example, is art not interactive without DIWO? You could say that the definition of interactivity is when the viewer interacts with the artwork, is actually able to affect the outcome of the artwork. But if the viewer is only interacting with a digital work, then how are they doing it with others? Well, one distinction is that DIWO is more specifically a group activity, and requires interaction between people. I emphasize this one statement because earlier in the essay you do an excellent job of introducing DIWO as collaborative and participatory, however you want to have a strong conclusion that builds on the many ideas and examples you have introduced. Also, I would have liked to have seen at least one example from Furtherfield in addition to the examples you gave from the micro-projects, and a reference to the Marc Garrett lecture. Lastly, I was very impressed that you were able to login, weren't you in Iceland?

DIWO - Research Critique Summary

“Expanded from the original term known as D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself). D.I.W.O ‘Do It With Others’. Is more representative of contemporary, collaborative – art practice which explores through the creative process of using networks, in a collective manner.” – Garrett

Do-It-With-Others, also known as DIWO in short, is a terminology created in 2006 by Furtherfield. Read more →

Hi Felicia, that was fast! I changed the due date of this assignment so you can incorporate the lecture by Marc Garrett. Please refer to the email I sent yesterday. Thanks! Randall
oh man. thanks for the note, mr. randall :-(  
Good work! You have many excellent ideas at play here and a fine understanding of DIWO as conceived by Furtherfield. My main comment is tying it all together in a more cohesive manner so that you can build to a strong conclusion. For example, you have an image that is unidentified (the composite), followed by a quote by Marc Garrett, and then a brief mention of Marc Garrett's lecture referring to the fading of social utopias, concluding with Project Networking the Unseen that connects those who are remote from one another. These are all interesting ideas but how do they tie together? What is the underlying theme? How could you keep the concept of DIWO as a theme that holds everything together. It is challenging with so many ideas, projects, references, etc., to discuss, so it is important to focus perhaps on less to maintain a more continuous discourse. Otherwise, you have done excellent research and I can see you are very enthusiastic about Furtherfield's work and the experiments we are conducting to carry out these ideas.

FELICIA’S EYES – Initial VS Outcome

Hello, World.

Unrecognisable, is how I would describe the final outcome of the edit. I have to say, I am thoroughly surprised by the transformation. Just by looking at the final outcome, can anyone tell if its an eye? Nope. Is Read more →

Beautiful transformation of the eye image. Do you think this would be possible without the collective participation of the group?

The image seems to dissolve into the ether! I would like to know though how you felt the social, collective process played into the transformation of the image.

When glitching up my teammates’ pictures, it was really freeing to be able to delight in making errors on top of degrading the photos. With other projects, I’m scared to make errors – this manifests in me constantly making sure I use many layers on Photoshop in case I need to correct something Read more →

Very interesting transformation into geometrical shapes. The question though, is how did you think the collective process of working together on the transformation played into its outcome?
Hi Mr Packer, I've updated the post with a reflection!
Thanks Bala!

I’ve Got G1iTch

In class today, we learnt and discovered about collective art and glitch. For in class project, we took images of our classmates and used photoshop to glitch them up!

Glitch, disturbing, provoking and horrifying. Beautifully Dangerous.

I echo Rosa Menkman’s description of glitch. It is noise compiled together, piles of neon colours, the mismatch of colours that draws our attention Read more →

The transformations seem to evolve into a watery texture, very nice. My question is: how did the glitch process benefit (or not) from the collective process of passing the image through each member of the group?

When we hear the word glitch, it’s never a good sign. If a program glitches then it creates more problems than advancements. But in this case, we want to glitch. Glitch in itself is an amalgamation of ideas and inputs that create a whole new invention.

As one of our mini-microprojects, we split ourselves into groups of fours Read more →

The glitch mini project was enjoyable as you distort one’s image into an unrecognisable artwork, collaboratively. We manipulated the images of our friends in freedom and to our own desire and it held the important factor of the DIWO (Do It With Read more →

Very nice! I think I like the next to the last image the best. And yes, the collective process provides the opportunity to achieve a result that may or may not be possible by a single artist.

@ Francesca

My wonderful friends turned me into a Pigcasso!

Photoshop-ing and distorting other people’s faces was a favourite past-time of mine, hence I was excited when I hear that this was our next micro-project! This is the first time that I’m distorting, or glitching in this case, alongside with others. Often times when I glitch alone, I would Read more →

Pigcasso, I love it! I think the final image is very effective, and I feel that it works well to have a vague resemblance of the original. Yes, just like the surprising juxtaposition of the surrealists, the collective process produces unexpected results that may or may not be possible without the collective process.
