How Web 2.0’s Ceaseless Image Stream Is Changing the Way We See, Create, and Communicate – ARTINFO.com

“Life in the stream of images has its advantages”…writes the author of this linked blog…   “The current pace of visual transmission online is such that trading pictures has become a form of real-time conversation, a dialogue in which the aggregate exchange is more important than any single component or any individual image”   The linked blog is a great in depth article on the effect of the new way of consuming images. This change in how we percieve images is occuring at the same time as legal battles on copyright and appropriation of images by artists, photographers, curators and galleries continue in the courts. It raises the question of how relevant those are if we no longer spend any length of time contemplating a single image but are, rather are immersed in a stream of images…What do you think? When as the last you fell in love with a single image and wanted to purchase it to hang on your wall? The best most artists can hope for is that their image will be shared and at the end of the day is that not the role that “galleries” used to play…a space in which you could walk around and look at alot of art? Is that not the social aspect of the new media called “Social media”?
