<nettime> WHO ARE THE SPIES? WE ARE THE SPIES!


WHO ARE THE SPIES? WE ARE THE SPIES!

Franz Thalmair interviews Daphne Dragona.

'Tag ties and affective spies' is the title of an on-line-exhibition 
which presents a selection of Internet-based artworks that highlight 
different aspects of the Social Web.

The exhibition features works by Alessandro Ludovico , Christophe Bruno 
, Daphne Dragona, Gregory Chatonsky, Jodi, Jonathan Harris, Juan Martin 
Prada, Les Liens Invisibles, Paolo Cirio, Personal Cinema, Ramsay 
Stirling, Sep Kamvar, The erasers, and Wayne Clements.

"Tagging", "posting", "sharing", "commenting", "rating" and ... once 
again, the other way around: affective and opinion-driven practices of 
exchange seem to be essential key issues for the everyday behaviour on 
the so called Social Web. But, what happens with us, the users of 
commercially hosted platforms, when we share our experiences and comment 
on opinions and statements brought in by other users? Do those 
mechanisms of interaction have any effect on the clever systems of 
pre-defined templates we move in? Tag ties and affective spies is the 
title of an online-exhibition which presents a selection of 
Internet-based artworks that highlight different aspects of the Social 
Web. With the exhibition, hosted by the National Museum of Contemporary 
Art Athens (EMST), curator of the show Daphne Dragona asks if we are 
really connecting or if we are also forming the structure of the Social 
Web itself?
