Dissertation

COVER

Stacey Koosel’s PhD thesis is a collection of articles that explore the effects of social media on personal identity.

The communication of identity narratives online has become abundant with the increasing popularity of social media. Social media enables users to build profiles based on their personal identities, making identity play a primary source of entertainment in the information age.

Topics such as privacy, ethical use of information, authenticity, social control, self-expression, self-censorship and other media affordances have all, subsequently, become important issues. The topic of ‘identity’ is used as a framework through which social media use can be analysed. The cultural phenomenon of digital identity is explored in a collection of seven articles using different approaches, including media ecology, the philosophy of technology, virtual ethnography and artistic research.

The articles raise questions about the ideology of identity creation in social media, by interviewing artists on how they use Facebook, pointing out paradigm shifts and paradoxes in contemporary culture and the discussion of other research in the field of digital culture.

TL;DR is Internet-jargon for ‘too long didn’t read’.

It’s a dismissive response to a text that was too long or not interesting enough to read. The acronymic response itself wastes no time. Cultural significance can be derived from the new term (coined in 2003) as an example of the demand for a certain style of communication, a need for instant satisfaction and the current state of attention spans. Media theorists attribute this change in literacy, as a response to information overload. When an environment overwhelms the senses, we revert to aural, spatial and visual styles of information processing as well as pattern recognition. The artwork selected for this international group exhibition of contemporary art explores the themes of information overload and the manipulation of media ecologies.
