Well, they aren't Twinkies (2005)

Since its early days, the internet has been changing the way we perceive the world around us. It has opened up doors for the sharing, mixing, and re-interpretation of media. The web has allowed for information to be distributed and re-mediated over and over. Today, everyone and everything has a web presence. Grandmas have blogs now. And you better believe that <a href="http://twinkies.com">Twinkies</a> have a flash site. What I'm trying to say here is that the internet is making everything old new again. But eventually, that becomes old as well. <br>The pieces I have chosen for my exhibit are all exciting in their own way. Each piece remediates a different form of media into something that's charming or unexpected. I love it when things that I am familiar with are twisted in such a way that it sheds a completely different light on them. The examples I have chosen take generally familiar things and place them into different context. This is done by making them more personal, less personal, more interactive, less interactive - all of the subjects are approached in a different way than you'd expect. In different ways, these projects all exhibit how "the medium is the message." <br> In this exhibit, you will be able to see and enjoy re-mediated text, voyeurism, film, viruses, and more!
