1st Day of My City My Voice 2011! ( +++check our new QR tag!!!)
Telling our story and mapping our neighborhood becomes easier through the use of new media tools such as QR tags because we can highlight the meaning we derive from our physical world by linking it to the digital realm. Beyond our blog we will also have our stories and audio art posted on soundcloud.com, videos on youtube.com and visual art hosted by a site as yet undetermined (any suggestions?). We are planning to explore the various hosting and search sites we use to mediate our online travel experience (blogger, soundcloud, google etc.) and contrast them with the various means of transportation that mediate our movement through the physical world (train, bus, car, foot etc.). QR tags for our various artistic products will be posted on and around public transportation around our city creating an interactive artistic experience for our neighbors!
