Curating Them is an interactive performance piece that explores the control of social media over a person’s real life decisions and our willingness to let it happen and shape our digital identity. This will play out over Instagram Story, using the poll function as our voting system. There will be two parties posting pre-determined questions at the same time. However, Read more →
The above are some of the ideas we came up with prior to finalisation. Eventually, we settled with #2 since we felt it has the highest potential to push the boundary of DIWO between 2 people through the use of social broadcast via Facebook. The title of our final project is named as “EXPERIMENTAL FASHUN“, which means Read more →
Inspired by the works of Blast Theory, a UK-based performance group that creates interactive performances that engage the public community in site-specific locations, we were assigned to re-create similar collaborative performances using Singapore as our stage. We will be using the social media, Instagram as a secondary platform. The performance that we create aims to stretch art into life, breaking Read more →

Social broadcasting is a revolutionary phenomenon which strays away from the notion of one-to-many streaming mode. Instead, it allows for many-to-many interactive experiences that bonds artists and audiences in live third space networks. Contrary to traditional media, social broadcasting promotes direct collaboration, interaction and interconnectivity as it utilises the idea of DIWO (Do It with Others).

“Social Broadcasting: An Unfinished Communications Revolution” – this is what the symposium is themed around. Having attended all three days of the symposium, I have come to understand that although it is a relatively short sentence, it is one that is chock full of meaning.

Annie Abrahams successfully took the minor keys of the internet and composed an internet piece with a perfect harmony, a harmony of disorientations.I liked very much, as a composer, how you situated her work in a musical context, achieving a balance and harmony of discordances brought about by the inconsistencies of the network. That is great! I wish I had thought of that myself... Through the Internet we are brought into a new kind of space, which you allude to at the close of your essay. The "unfinished" nature of the communications revolution is simply as you stated: it is up to the next generation of netartizens to move the project to the next stage. Who knows what the Internet will be like in 50 years, or if there will still be an Internet as we know it today. Artists such as Annie Abrahams and Jon Cates are giving us a glimpse into the future by demonstrating the human elements of our relationship to technology, by unveiling the glitches and errors, blood and multiplicity of identity, noise and latencies. All of these are what make the Internet human, ultimately communications is a human exchange and the telematic element is how that exchange is mediated through technology, which you expressed so very well. Excellent!

When it comes to social broadcasting, we can see the many changes that it has come to adapt and grow throughout the years. Many artists have experimented with the medium, using it to produce works and attempting to push the boundaries where it involves a greater audience and it becomes a work which encourages active interaction. Although it may seem Read more →
