Online Identity Web Project (work in progress…)

So my Online Identity project will be based on MY OWN online identity. My main online identity is Facebook, therefore I will use this social network site as a template for my website project.
I will “recreate” somehow my profile page of Facebook where each part of it is linked to images as in nowadays society “we show rather than tell”. So clicking on each part of it (Where I work, What’s on my mind, My feelings, Places etc…) you will be redirect to images related to that topic. It will be a sort of a “window” into my “private life” although, it is still ME who decide what I want to SHOW and what I don’t!
Glitch Art really fascinates me so I decided also to include this “strange/abstract” art to my online web project as glitches are basically “errors in communication because of/through technology” symbolising that what you see online is not always what it seems!

This is the first draft:

However, I also thought that I could “glitch” each part of my Facebook content but I am not sure if it would too confusing :/
Well…I have done it to see how it would look:

Glitch exercise

As the definition of Glitch is an “error in communication” I thought it could be funny/ironic to use a picture of me and my ex boyfriend to produce a Glitch Artwork.

This is the original photograph:

Notes based on Nunes, M. (2011) ‘ Error: Glitch, Noise, and Jam in New Media Cultures’

  • Our information utopia is an error-free world of efficiency, accuracy and predictably. Nowadays society tries to minimise errors and maximise performance
  • Relationship between  information and error but also the role that error itself plays within the communicative system
  • Errors/ Glitches happen in our everyday life
  • Glitch is an error in communication
  • Repetitions
  • Errors reveal something that is invisible (“a good tool is an invisible tool”)
