At the end of 2015 this blog will be inactive. This blog was utilized to post my experiences, preliminary research and the process of my interdisciplinary practice. The four year content of this blog, from 2011-15, concentrates on forming my Internet-based collection project. The postings pertaining to research or involvement with individuals/ institutions with aspects of the collections do not intend to be disrespectful of the history or present public institution/ museum practices.

New "site" for the Public Bulletin Board Collection
Icon for Public Bulletin Board Collection
a year ago, I introduced the Public Bulletin Board Collection theme. This collection theme investigates some of
the broader contexts of my research with the “collection” project, such as
public access to the collection, participation in the colleting process, and
concepts concerning print and digital media objects.
Public Bulletin Board Collection has
been recently relocated to a Tumblr Blog site. My decision to remove the
collection theme from the project website was made because of the easier public
accessibility of posting images and text. The Tumblr site offers an option of
allowing people to submit posts with various media (images, texts, links) to
contribute to the blog.
submissions have been sparse during a year’s time of promoting participation to
the collecting process of this collection theme. I considered the first
collecting process of submitting images through email to have two many steps.
Since I am a generalist with html coding, I began to investigate pre-designed
templates or sites that offered another option of participants posting
my March 27, 2013, New Collection Theme, blog post I referred to Olga Goriunova’s concepts of using media as
an art platform, along with the engagement of direct subjective and societal
involvement that develops the contemporary aesthetic practices of the Internet.
I explored her five concepts to the preliminary investigations of the Public
Bulletin Board Collection theme
in the 2013 blog post.

this blog post concerning the relocation of the collection theme, I wanted to
acknowledge one of the 5 concepts that pertain to the reason for having
selected a different site. The concept is media’s relationship with agency.The variety of methods of how
participants submit digital information with digital devices has not been
altered. The digital communication medium is what has changed. Instead of using
email in the collecting process between the participant and myself to submit information
a blog program is used. The participant’s can directly attach their images and
information of the location of the public bulletin board.This switch in the digital
communication medium involves one site for submitting and presenting the contributions.
Tumbr site has it own agreement to public posting information. This brings
about questions of who is really presenting and collecting the Public
Bulletin Board Collection,
Tumblr or myself. These questions of authorship between social media and people
will be investigated as the collection develops. In addition, the other 4
concepts of Olga Goriunova’s will be examined too.
have moved the first 4 images from the Public Bulletin Board Collection over to the Tumblr site. View and participate in
the collecting process on the Tumblr site.
