At the end of the scroll
One week workshop with Marc Kremers – At the end of the infinite scroll - at Ecal.
In the age of the internet, where 72 hours of video are uploaded onto YouTube each minute, 20,000 images, probably selfies, are uploaded each second on Instagram, and 20,000 pictures uploaded onto Tumblr each minute, we no longer need creators, we need curators. And if curation is an act of creation, and creation is the leisure activity of the 21st century, we are doomed! So in this workshop we will re-question the relationship between the user and the interface, and challenge contemporary modes of content consumption (tumblr, facebook, twitter) as well as content creation via the prism of pre-internet technology. This will be done by making two websites. One will think it’s a TV and live on your desktop, the other will think it’s a remote control and live in your pocket. Welcome to ecal.tv, the end of the infinite scroll. We collaborate with this project giving 4 different looped channels under the concept of "Hard drive selecta".
