weaving week 2 posts

Its now tuesday evening and I review week 2 posts in order to get a feel for tp1011’s blogging practices; 22 new posts its a great number, and only 8 out of  these are ‘draft’ which leads to the grand number of 14 published posts. well done!

In terms of semiotics and visual arts- the theme of the week- i’m glad to report that 9 posts reflect on it :

For some additional ideas on theory blogging,  I suggest you read this post on academic blogging:

Blogging as an academic exercise is different from simply posting. The author (Will Richardson) diferentiates between posting, simple blogging, real blogging and complex blogging. These categories might be useful to help you develop content in response to the weekly readings:

  • 1-posting assignments (not blogging)
  • 2-journaling, ie ‘this is what i did today’ (not blogging)
  • 3-posting links (not blogging)
  • 4-links with descriptive annotation, ie, ‘this site is about… (not blogging)
  • 5-links with analysis that gets into the meaning of the content being linked (simple blogging)
  • 6-reflective, meta-cognitive writing on practice without links (complex writing but simple blogging)
  • 7-links with analysis and synthesis that articulate a deeper understanding of relationship to the content being linked and written with potential audience in mind (real blogging)
  • 8-extended analysis and synthesis over a long period of time that builds on previous posts, links and comments (complex blogging)

Our aim is to move from posting or simple blogging into real blogging and complex blogging!


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.
