Life Needs Internet

BY JEROEN VAN LOON
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

Life Needs Internet aims to document how we currently feel about the Internet. This differs per culture, generation, country or even city; there is no global digital culture. While in 2013 39% of the world’s population had access to the Internet, writing a letter is still a technology that is roughly available to anyone. It’s a simple, low-cost and low-tech way to document thoughts and feelings. The global influence of the Internet is preserved through a traditional medium; each handwritten letter is a unique cultural artefact. Together these letters create an archaeological insight into digital culture.

Condividi L’arte

BY MICHELA BONIFACIO
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

10 years after the foudation of Musei di Strada Nuova, Palazzo Rosso gives his visitors a free wi-fi connection. Musei di Strada Nuova are now asking to all visitors to take pictures inside and share them on the social media. The project Condividi l’Arte wants to communcate this new aproach: it will be allowed to take pictures of the buildings and their inner treasure. The Major of Genoa, Marco Doria, took his own selfie and he shared on twitter with #selfiealmuseo. This hashtag was used from teens of people to share selfie. Utopia Pirata, the creator and owner of this idea in Genoa, is now looking for other Museum involvement to share arts and to make culture social.
