Participation values both ‘the autonomy and voice of the individual’ and ‘the experience of becoming-collective, of belonging’ according to Christopher Kelty in Digital Keywords, 2016 (238).

Now that we may have become a ‘killer app’ for the computers that keep us busy, as Sherry Turkle explains in Alone Together, 2011, ‘…stillness and solitude are hard to come by’ (279). We must make sure that we can still access the creative state of ‘reverie’ and ‘let things happen within the mind’ (Storr, quoted by Turkle, 273).

Ryan Holiday in Growth Hacker Marketing suggests that in contrast to traditional marketing strategies, ‘it doesn’t matter how many people know about you or find out about you’, but it is important to initially attract a small group of interested participants, by ‘handing out fliers’ if necessary (2014, 26).  In this case, perhaps distributing Inside here postcards can be considered growth hacking?

I am part of a group of Axis artists beta testing Mozilla’s Webmaker app, which allows users to make projects on their smartphone.

As part of the testing process, I’ve used Webmaker to make these interactive artworks, word image generator and word space image, using donated phrases on the theme of ‘taking a walk’.  The user chooses a start point and subsequent phrases to create word images.

These projects can be shared and viewed on any device without downloading the app, and re-mixed, which encourages a networked aspect to the projects.  As Webmaker is still being developed and the tools are still very basic, I made these word based artworks, perhaps reminiscent of early 1980’s text based computer art.   Please feel free to re-mix!

Artspan interview

May 2015 | K M Bosy

Adapted from interview at Artspan.com 

“My Inside here app-form artwork aims to provide a focus for users’ reflections.  This could be in the form of feelings, thoughts, thoughts about feelings, epiphanies etc., and I want to encourage people to anonymously share these reflections via the app to my blog, in order to create a related, open ended social-networked art piece.

“Although altitude, longitude and latitude are automatically captured when a user shares, in order to indicate an approximate position, these can be deleted by the user before sharing.  The shares are anonymous and the users are not linked to each other in any way.  The social-networked element of the artwork is that it is created by participants in the artwork.  The users who choose to participate by using the link provided in the app artwork will create the social networked artwork, the content of which will form a comment in itself.  It will be interesting to see what is shared.

Inside here has as many locations as participants.  Each user is an autonomous agent and an essential and active participant.  It requires the user to consider their own reality through the lens of poetic symbolism and in this way acts as a prompt to encourage contemplation and reflection.”
