What: Net Work
When: Monday 2nd of February, 12h – 18h
Where: Parsons Paris room 500
Who: Dave Young
In this workshop, we will use Yet Another Collaborative Editor to construct documents, reflecting on increasingly mainstream workflows of cloud-based design/production tools and their influence on networked collaborative practice.
Yet Another Collaborative Editor is both a collaborative design tool and a critique of the ‘flat hierarchy’ fantasy in systems of networked labour. It can be used as a system for the democratic co-production of transmedia web publications, or as pseudo-social experiment software exploring the ‘petty exploits’ used by individuals in open systems to leverage power and generate hierarchies.
Yet Another Collaborative Editor acted as the Embassy Gallery’s website as part of the exhibition Vitae in November 2014, enabling any visitor to the site to collaboratively edit the gallery’s online presence.
Dave Young is an artist, researcher, and occasional librarian. His practice follows critical research into digital culture, manifested through workshops, website development, and talks on subjects varying from cybernetics and the Cold War history of network technologies, to issues around copyright and open source/free culture.
He studied Fine Art at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin and completed a masters in Networked Media at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. He is currently based in Edinburgh, where he is founder of Localhost, an events and workshop programme that encourages a politicised analysis of digital art and culture.
