Social networking as ‘artproject’

In the Sydney Morning Herald yesterday He knows where you live a short peice about a Canberra student using myspace profiles, in particular user pics, to create artwork. On Reuben Ingall’s website at http://www.idiotslikemehaveyourpicture.tk he has three pages of back to back user profile pics and in this context they take on a whole new life. He also raises some interesting questions about perceptions of privacy in virtual spaces. We are taking more risks sharing information with strangers online than we would with strangers in the real world.
