Introduction: Selfpost | Postself

…..
Postself is one component to the art project Selfpost | Postself.
I will use this blog to document and reflect upon my relationship to the online networks that I exist within, specifically the network of all social networks – Facebook. Although I became very aware of Facebook when it first emerged on the internet, I have been observing the behaviors of its subjects and analyzing social implications from afar. To fully understand the implications Facebook has on one’s sense of self, and the impact of digital space and time on the human psyche, I have decided to enter this space as myself; I have decided to “selfpost.” Expecting myself to emerge and transform throughout this experience, I intend to document this experience here. I intend to examine the “postself,” and to explore questions about self/selves after Facebook….how selves respond to the digital medium that surrounds us in contemporary culture…a philosophy of the self in an age of social networks.

    This is your first post and although I am somewhat sad to read that you have succumbed I realize it is for your art. I look forward to reading your observations.
