  • Welcome and intro
  • An exploration of the changes in our culture that allow active participation
    Observations through art of our human desires to create, participate, and contribute to a greater good
    Maybe there’s something here for brands to learn as they build a stronger relationship with consumers and move them to action
  • The way users interact online has changed. Moved from using the Web to browse through sites, to search for specific information and now to publish
    We are super connected
    This change has also impacted culture. We have the ability to share our experiences, express our emotions, with a large audience

    This change has also impacted culture. We have the ability to share our experiences, express our emotions, with a large audience
  • Technology is now enabling us to share and respond
    We share these experiences as words, pictures, videos and actions through a variety of tools: this is what we call Social Media
  • Why my interest in the convergence of social media, technology, and art? What is the motivation?
    The journey started with a search for personal voice, for a desire to find answers about my place in the world. A desire to make a difference
    80s art, political art

  • Seeking participation may starts with an understanding of the community and its needs and leads to collective action.
    It may be about finding a solution to a social problem, moving toward the common good, creating impact.
  • Moving away from the individual, not what benefits me, but the community as a whole. In the technology world, a parallel of this is open source. It is about recognizing that when you allow people to unleash their passions (not commodity based) they uncover all types of interesting solutions. The end result does not belong to the individual. Encouragement to try new things.

  • The work is about the collective experience, our participation, our involvement.
    Collective participation, what is needed? collaboration, co-creation, trust.
  • Christo and Jeanne-Claude installations
    The Gates in Central Park, NYC. 7503 fabric panels. Feb 12, 2005
    The pay for the entire work themselves
    Collaboration in the process: getting permits, making the work a reality
    We become part of the work and change it with our own experience of it
  • A project by Tactical Art Coalition
    Group of artist worked together to change the urban landscape of Halifax as to challenge our notions of history, heroes and values
  • Spencer Tunick’s installation
    Models are unpaid volunteers
  • The goal is to share experiences with a community that finds value in your content and wants to share it with others.
    Move the community to action
    You give up your role as author; instead you are an agent
    There’s no ownership
    The community shares your cause
    Building the narrative collectively
  • Listen: understand the community and its needs. Brands need to pay attention to the culture. Marketing needs more Liberal Arts majors. Be curious.
    Respond: get involved. Be naked and vulnerable. Brands need to be transparent and present. Become a member of the community to gain trust.
    Create: Take risks and plan for participation. Encourage questions.
