Art with Posts from Social Networks

In traditional photography- and video art, it’s an artist group or single artist who decides, what will be shown. Using user generated-content, people all over the world receive a voice by sharing their thoughts and stories on social networks. They see things in the immediate vicinity. Their posts are personal points of views and a window to a changing world. As a gigantic sum, they provide a comprehensive picture of the world that becomes part of the artwork. The viewer of this artwork participates in the social movements of our time. In that way, we are able to reflect our life, hopes, wishes and especially the culture of the younger generation. Perhaps more contemporary then through traditional art. Such artworks are changing and alter continuously. They are never the same – always new. Like nature – an endless river, every second new. http://marclee.io
