INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

My Sneaker Trail


“You’d be surprised, how far sneakers can take you.”

MeeeI decided to start my trail through Wikipedia, and searching up sneakerssneakerbegLets start walking……

  1.  WikiPedia
  2.  Much like Pinterest
  3.  Shopping
  4.  Blog about different styles
  5.  Blog focused on denim
  6.   Blog/Shopping
  7.   Advertisement of the ModCloth brand
  8.  Workwear
  9.  Things associated with officewear
  10.  Interesting Socks
  11.  Things associated with shoes
  12.   Pair of sneakers in association with Nike and Apple

As you have viewed, you notice that the network in this was as follows:                                                                                              Search engine -> Shopping site -> Blog -> Social Media

This is how a brand becomes international.  This is how a fashion trends begin.  It starts with one thing, and builds to something even bigger.  I noticed that I did find myself back to the sneakers, but it just shows that even a sneaker can direct you to clothes for the office, or dresses for the summer.  We would associate sneakers with sports or something athletic, but it is more than that.

  1. The second I looked at your list I liked it. I really enjoy how you made your internet adventure like a walk, and instead of a park it’s the internet! I am conflicted because I am glad you kept the focus on fashion but did not limit it to shoes, but I also wonder if you could have found something completely different if you clicked on different links. I do love how you ended back on shoes. In a way this list is like a commercial: those who look at it might be interested in the products shown. To be honest I might come back to this list to look at all these clothing websites.


  2. Looking at your links, I like how you was able to stay on the topic of clothes and apparel. Overall, it fits into one category. I think that your trail really emphasize how multiples sites are related if you focus on a certain topic. In summary, your trail is a good example of how you used the network as instrument to search for results that solely focused on clothing.
