1. a shared on-line journal where people can post diary entries about their personal experiences and hobbies; « postings on a blog are usually in chronological order »
For many years now people have had access to the Internet, and therefore, have become a part of the Cybernetic Era. Blogs are the new and technological way of creating a journal or diary, and making something that was once so private, completely available to the public. Of course they are on the web. Being on the web allows anyone to access and view them, and in some cases, they become interactive. When they become interactive, or contain images and videos, they become works of art.
All of the works in this exhibit are unique ways of expressing everyday events, and everyday life. By usage of text, video, photos, and flash, these artists show how the progress of the internet has allowed people to share their thoughts, as well as artistic ability.

This work is fun and random. It’s photo based, and created so people from the public can view and add their own images. There is also a ‘Private’ section, that can only be changed by the artist.
