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

“Pie In The Face”

Leave a comment

Just an Update:  I had just recently got my website working after tweeks with it, but now it is back down again for some odd reason. I’m hoping to figure out the reason why by tomorrow though.   (Okay, it should work now)

Project 2:

After going over the readings and getting a preview of the examples shown to us, of how other artist went about this concept, I had finally come to the conclusion that I wanted to do something in relation to Youtube and their interaction with what they call the “stars” on youtube(Even without the title of ‘being a amateur’ and getting paid like a professional).  I wanted to reach out to random youtube stars to see if they would accept a challenge that was not originally started by me, but sent as a challenge to me.

This challenge is called the “Pie in the face” challenge which is much like the Ice bucket challenge.  It has a soul purpose which is to show support and raise money for autism.Autism-a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

So…….as a ‘consumer’, I accepted the challenge and utilized it as a proposition for youtube stars who had not heard about it yet.  Making it into something that is international.  I reached out to 4 different people, and unfortunately only received 1 response as of today.  Unfortunately, with her situation, she said she would try to do so, but wasn’t sure.  She is also going to spread the word to others that had channels as well.  So, in a way, it became like a ‘network’.  I did offer to give her money for doing this, but it was also a gain, because this was something brought to my attention, and I wanted to be apart of something significant.
