|Issue Date:||2012||Abstract:||With technological advancement, commoditization and ubiquity of digital cameras, excessive amounts of images are taken and uploaded onto the Internet by the second. These digital traces, shared in the public domain, form a huge database vulnerable to research and exploitation. This essay deals with our dependence on this pertinent medium in contemporary living to understand our position in the society. It is a study on a new language of digital vernacular photography, made accessible and necessary by social media. Tracing the history of appropriation, incorporating photography, film and new media theory, we see how photography extends to performance, sculpture and video. It also opens up discussions and observations about public & private, the act of photography and photographic conventions.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/48971||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
