not so anonymous

I’m having a social media event tonight at the Indianapolis Museum of Art… hope to see you there. No mask required.

camera phone journalism

I just blogged for the IMA… read the full post here.

I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to tell the difference between my “personal” and “professional” social media identity anymore. The lines have blurred in so many ways just in the past couple of years. Yes, part of it has to do with passion for what I do, but even so- everything has become so intertwined, so to speak, when it comes to the ‘interwebs’. And I’m not the only one.

This photo was snapped just this morning down in 100 Acres by Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Lisa Freiman and promptly tweeted by CEO Max Anderson:

Take for instance how social media has reshaped the world of journalism. “Citizen journalism is the concept of members of the public “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing and disseminating news and information.” Examples of this can be seen through blogs, twitter, and camera phone images.

As a museum, we can employ this same idea. Staff, artists and visitors can capture events as they happen with their iPhone or a Flip Video. The following images were captured on artist duo Type A’s cell phones and then uploaded to Facebook:

I’d TAP that

Wanna know what I’ve been doing at work? Here’s blog post I wrote today for the IMA about the multi-media tour (available via iPod Touch) we did for Tara Donovan: Untitled. If you can’t tell, I’m pretty friggin’ proud of it.

We’ve also been racing around the museum creating a channel of short day-to-day happenings we like to call IMA TV. Check it out thus far here and look for a spiffy ArtBabble-like landing page for them in the future.

Here’s one of my favorites:

Enough with the snow!

Well, it snowed again… so much that the museum closed today. What better way to spend my 1 yr. anniversary at my job than with a day off, ha. It also happens to be my dad’s birthday today. It’s currently snowing… when will it stop?

At least the sun is shining.

These little guys just opened up!
