Symposium and reflection on Lev Manovich’s The Practice of Everyday (Media) Life

Today’s tutorial was a fascinating discussion about the nature of the web and the pros and cons it offers us in terms of art making, sharing and engagement. Rather than summarise the discussion (that is on Skype anyway, I have chosen to do it through GIF and collage).

The power to express ourselves online is not straightforward. but viewing the two approaches here (static and active) shows just how different moving images are from still ones. In the GIF I’m given more information and required to grab the small bits of information from the main image as it flashes at me whereas the still image allows me to peruse the image slowly drinking in the information.

The GIF feels like I am being force fed while the static image give me control.
