Publication Date 2007
Description Open 13: The Rise of the Informal Media examines how search engines, weblogs and You-Tube are changing public opinion. The public mass media are no longer the most important platforms of formulation of opinion or reflection. They are under threat from "media formats' such as weblogs and podcasts. The interaction between the established media and the new virtual media environments has implications for the `public programme'. Open 13 investigates how the more individually tailored communication technologies and media strategies alter `the message' and reconfigure the public domain. Does the public definitively disintegrate in digital media spheres or is it being rewritten based on a different logic? What are the opportunities for artistic practices and critical forms of publicness?
