Hologram Homage: A Post-Catalysts DIY Post


I could not say farewell to CATALYSTS without a
Hologram Homage.

In this case, my dress is not McQueen but rather Hal Rubenstein (with dangling tags!) This course has been so personally catalytic, and I must thank the powers-that-be who afforded me a scholarship to it. When I received word that I was a scholarship recipient last October, I could not wait for Spring 2014 to arrive.

My excitement was fully realized throughout the course and especially upon my receipt of a Digital Badge from MoMA for successful completion of the CATALYSTS/MoMA course, as well as a personal note from Credly.   


Stay tuned as I continue to build on carolynartmedia!  

Interactivity & the Collective Narrative: “Catalysts”

In 2007, the year I finished my Master’s in Media Studies, I attended sleepwalkers at MoMA and wrote extensively on the interactive element within exhibition design for completion of my degree work. Aitken’s sleepwalkers is a good example of a contemporary experience of media being carried out collectively and also speaks to the collective narrative, as Aitken built into the projections a random re-ordering of the scenes. He thereby established a new collective narrative with each cycle, engaging and involving the viewer in a new way each time, albeit slightly dictatorial to the viewer.

On an unrelated-to-sleepwalkers note, we’re actually addressing thoughts on social media for Week 2 of Catalysts, and I seem to have missed that mark. So, I’m adding this post-script regarding social media and how I use it in my art & work: I’m not on Facebook, but I am on Twitter and I totally see the value of social media 🙂
