Yesterday, I attended the Curating Virtually: New Media and Digital Arts Global Interventions session at the College Arts Association Conference. One of the panelists Yunjin La-mei Woo a PhD Candidate at Indiana University gave her presentation entitled Curating Public Interventions Online: Para-Sites 2014 Distributed Exhibition Project. Yunjin described the parasitic tactics toward the performance, curation, and interventions within the theory and practice of various projects. Included was the use of social media sites to implement public awareness via the Internet. She stated that she was aware the projects background resisted the concept of the Facebook experience. This wasn’t the only challenge with posting information pertaining to the Para-Sites on the Facebook page. Yunjin commented about how she experienced Facebook’s continual marketing campaign to raise her “LIKE” status. Her description related to my experiences with initiating social media sites (Facebook) as a link to gain addition public access to my Internet-based Collection Project. Since the context of the Para-Sites is to disrupt ordinary established boundaries, I view this as an intervention to the “normal” characteristics of Facebook concerning the status of participants.
The intent of this blog post is not to slander a major social media site, but is for the development of arts-based research and scholarly work with social media sites as links to new media projects and public accessibility.

This is in regards to the development of contemporary aesthetics of the Internet and the collection theme as an art platform that requires participation for the collecting process.
