Aesthetic: Blast Theory – DIGITAL VOICES
Looking beyond the aesthetics of application programming, I want to expand the broadness of my artistic research which also include interactive projects like the Blast Theory.
One of their projects which I thought indirectly related to my field of study was Digital Voices.
“Digital Voices provided a platform for meaningful exchange and created opportunities with young people (aged 16-24) from diverse backgrounds.”
DIVO looked at the possibilities for young people from cultural cold spots to tell their own stories via portable and online technologies such as smart phones, mobile phones, tablet and other hand held devices. It enabled them to tell their own stories in their own ways and to communicate with each other directly and immediately. It looked at issues of access and affordability to these forms of technology and how young people connect from different communities and different countries.
