Welcome to our analogue(d) social network!

We don’t know about you, but we got tired of scrolling up and down, left and right, 5 kinds of sideways on Mondays. And we can’t underestimate the importance of social media in making our artworks known, but (sigh), do I really have to post today?

The consumption of art via screen (phone, computer) has become so ubiquitous that it often replaces a visit to a gallery or museum, and the experience is implicitly degraded. We enjoy the digital space, but we need the tangible even more, don’t we?

Share, Tag or Dye is that place where social media goes to meet the tangible. We invited the whole world into this, since social media can instrument it so easily (and we wanted the best of both worlds!). Through the open call, 204 people joined our analogue social network, from Chile to India, from Sweden to New Zealand!

All of you who joined us contributed with a link from your social media feeds to be brought into “matter” using a nineteenth century technique, cyanotype that is, a technique based on iron salts that are UV sensitive, yielding a deep blue print. The technique is credited to Sir John Herschel (1842), although he used it mostly for reproducing notes. It was a woman who first used this process under a fotografic démarche – botanist Anna Atkins, in her “Photographs of British Algæ: Cyanotype Impressions”. This is also the first book with photographic illustrations – pretty cool, right?

If you want to know more about this technique, you can start here:

Did we stir your interest, gentle person(s) from the wide public?

Than join us, enjoy your stroll and, remember:

Share, Tag or Dye!
