Postmodern Media: Digital Identity vs Digital Self

Two useful videos as we come towards the end of the unit:

Network from Michael Rigley on Vimeo.

"Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network."

WoW from aram bartholl on Vimeo.

"The WoW project takes this mode of publicizing players’ names that’s typical of online 3D worlds and transfers it into the physical domain of everyday life. Participants of the WoW-workshop will be able to construct their own name out of cardboard and then parade around in public with it hovering above their head. What happens when a person’s customary anonymity in the public sphere is obliterated by the principles operative in virtual worlds online?"

I came across the two videos via Dean Groom. He makes some thoughtful comments in his original post as well.
