The majorly rough copy of my honours thesis research plan

Reviewing the most influential and significant literature that combines the study of visual art, new media research and digital identity narratives, which apply methodologies and theories to analyze artists and their use of new media technology. I will then be applying a sum of 3-4 data sets to artists on Tumblr with the intention of creating my own data set in which artists and their use of new media technology can be studied.

Is the Internet killing your creativity? Here is what Jeff Hamada, creator of Booooooom.com, has to say about it! 

"In July, I flew down to Los Angeles to speak as part of Imprint Culture Lab’s on-going lecture series. One of the last speakers they had was David Choe so I had a fairly tough act to follow (he began his talk by smashing a chair on stage). Two years ago I set a goal for myself to say yes to public speaking events until I actually enjoyed doing them, and I’m excited to announce I may not ever speak publicly again; I actually enjoyed this one.

I don’t want to give away my whole talk, I’d rather you just watch it, but there’s a healthy amount of embarrassing stories, and things I’ve observed about the Internet. Specifically the way in which it’s killing creativity without most people noticing it.

Watch the full hour-long video below (if you have nothing better to do), and if you have any thoughts/insights about anything I touch on I’m totally into having a discussion in the comments section!

Hope you enjoy it.”
