However, if we concentrate on art, we can easily observe what has changed.
Art has indeed also gone digital, and new forms of art has emerged: the art that could be only understood and experienced online.
I am particularly interested in the artists that played along with the over exposition of individual’s private lives, and used that fact to create a new poetic digital language.
Everyone was suddenly sharing their most intimate details and showing their personality, expressing their true self. Through blog posts, images, coding, forums, videos, animations, etc. One could have a double life on the web, and today more than ever.
How important is the truthfullness of the online avatar ?
Which identity is more truthfull, the real one or the online one ?
What is the social meaning behind artists using their private online live ?
