keeping the blog tidy with categories and tags

http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories-vs-tags/

Categories allow for a broad grouping of post topics, but when you want to describe a post in more specific terms, use  tags

Tags are similar to categories, but they are generally used to describe your post in more detail.

For now, stick to the following categories

TP1011

Semiotics

And tag your posts with your first name

Example

I use TP1011

And semiotics for the week 2 etivities

For next week etivities we can use a more adequate category like spectatorship-gaze

And

I use paula to tag my posts

About paula roush

I am a Lisbon-born artist based in London, UK. I am the founder of msdm, a platform for art practices that are mobile-strategies-[of]-display-[and]- mediation. It is a platform for both individual and collaborative work, shown in the context of exhibitions, publications, conferences and teaching/seminars. I work with photography, archives, found material and performance through editing strategies that investigate notions of authorship, authenticity, history and memory. I am interested in publishing as artists’ practice and as platform to explore the intersections between the roles of artist, editor and curator. My current projects look at ideas of (re) production in the work of art, resulting in publications in several formats that encompass the hand-made, the print on demand and the ebook.
