Cultural Probe: 8 July 2008 to 8 July 2010

ByMegan Smith

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This artist book references 1199 contributions to Twitter made during the last two years of my PhD research at Leeds Metropolitan University. The content takes place between 8 July 2008 & 8 July 2010. The primary recording tool used to do this was an iPhone, which additionally enabled me to instantly record my geo-location and upload images that referenced the individual situations. I called the project and phone Cultural Probe. It was a lifelogging experiment that provided an overview of the intermingled aspects of my practice, research and life. Cultural Probe importantly became a referencing system for the methodology of my practice, which used social media to both make new work and to archive my research and art practice. While this collection of micro posts provides a sample of my activity, more thorough extensions of the posts can be found by following the hyperlinks to my blog, Flickr & Delicious accounts and various other websites cited within.
