An Authoring Software Digital Humanities Resource


Social networking environments, where artists and writers come together in the discussion, creation, and sharing of art and literature, encompass conferencing systems, email, Twitter and Second Life, among many others. Ideally, on software-mediated social media platforms there is an energy that reflects and catalyzes the artmaking process, fostering a creative bonding -- not only for writers and artists working in new media art and literature but also for contemporary culture as a whole, including artists in the fields of music, dance, and theater, among many others.

Social Media Community, an Authoring Software resource in progress, looks at social media platforms in terms of their historical and contemporary roles in the creation of cultural community on the Internet. The Current Focus is pre-World Wide Web social media, but the resource will eventually be expanded.

The Community Memory, 1973-1975
"The idea is to work with a process whereby technological tools, like computers, are used by the people themselves to shape their own lives and communities in sane and liberating ways. In this case the computer enables the creation of a communal memory bank, accessible to anyone in the community. With this, we can work on providing the information, services, skills, education, and economic strength our community needs."

ARTBOX/ARTEX, 1981-1991

"My belief in this new order of the text, actually a new order of discourse, and my wish to exercise and celebrate the participatory mode of dispersed authorship which networking affords, led me to devise a project wholly concer ned with the interweaving of textual inputs from a global distribution of artists. This became 'La Plissure du Texte' in the exhibition ELECTRA 1983 in the Musee d'art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. The title of the project alludes, of course, to Roland Barthes' book 'Le Plaisir du Texte' but pleating (Plissure) is not intended to replace pleasure (plaisir) only to amplify and enhance it."

"You know that I'd been following and participating in Canadian Art from the mid-seventies. And this had gotten us involved in slo-scan video and computer networking projects as early as the late seventies. In 1979/80 at SF MOMA we did a project called ARTISTS USE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS where we created a slo-scan link from that museum to cultural facilities in Tokyo, Vancouver, Toronto, Vienna, NYC, and Boston. The transmission was broadcast live on TV in Austria. To coordinate it all we used I.P. Sharpe and Associates, a Canadian based telecom carrier. The event is major in the history of art, because it was the "first" time this activity found its way to a museum. We interacted with these locations from SF MOMA, and it was great."
