Social Computing is the update / continuation of a previous research on the art, the web and the social media curated by VIAINDUSTRIAE in 2013 and first published in 2014 with the title “Public Computing”. Social Computing continues the path of the exhibition of 2014 “TAPC” the Artist’s PC technology and public computing at Le Botanique in Brussels, then presented as a multimedia installation that showed the different artistic practices dedicated to net-art.
That display was conceived in 8 sections for artistic intervention topics on the web (download / upload, system / system failure resources, excel-lence / free software, online / offline, post-internet, newsletter / daily poetry lettering, save and share, user’s interaction). For each section there were three selected artists working with different media: web art projects, video projections, work-stations, “digital” publications, screenshots and a multi-sensory interactive installation.
Now the context of the Social Hackathon in Foligno is explored and addresses the issue of social web platforms that comes to different ways and with different approaches used and experienced by international contemporary artists. The publication “Social Computing” is concieved as a manual for an alternative use of PC platforms, such as best practices for users while browsing or sharing. This volume is added to the previous one (Public Computing) and will also be available in a package that combines the two outputs of Brussels and Foligno.

Social Computing è una ricerca di 2 anni sull’arte nel web e nei social media curata da viaindustriae e presentata attraverso una mostra video e una pubblicazione “istruttiva” sull’uso delle tecnologie ITC, del web e dei social media. Social Computing continua il percorso della mostra del 2014 “TAPC” the Artist’s PC technology and public computing al Botanique di Bruxelles, presentata allora come installazione multimediale e laboratorio che mostrava le diverse pratiche artistiche dedicate alla computer net-art.
Quel display fu concepito in 8 sezioni per argomenti di intervento artistico sul web (download / upload, risorse di sistema / errore di sistema, excel-lence / software libero, on-line / offline, post-internet, newsletter / daily poetry lettering, save and share, user’s interaction). Per ogni sezione vi erano tre artisti selezionati che lavoravano con i diversi media: web art projects, video projections, work-stations, “digital” publications, screenshots e una installazione multisensoriale interattiva.
Ora per il contesto del Social Hackathon a Foligno viene approfondito e affrontato il tema delle piattaforme social web che viene a vario modo e con diversi approcci adoperato ed esperito dagli artisti contemporanei internazionali. Viene presentato inoltre il catalogo della mostra “Social Computing” edito da VIAINDUSTRIAE publishing pensato come un manuale per un uso alternativo delle piattaforme PC, come buone pratiche per gli utenti nella navigazione e nella condivisione. Il volume abbinato al precedente dal titolo Public Computing sarà disponibile anche anche in una confezione che unisce le due uscite di Bruxelles e Foligno.
