Networked Project Theme 4: Series As Medium

Outline

A series is no longer confined to the works themselves, but also begins to exist in the juxtaposition and silences that connect and divide the works. Because if its malleable and collaborative nature, the internet has become a hum for serialisation. Creative practitioners can keep works running for many years, adding to them over time. Artists can also open works to the public to contribute to the series and thereby change how the series is made and thereby its meaning.

Series on the internet draw heavily from previous serial forms, television and comics being the most represented. But methods of serialisation unique to networked media are also emerging. Social feeds, blogs, and web-specific videos - making this a very interesting space to explore.
