Visual Social Media Lab: Social media users now share up to 1.8 billion images daily across different platforms and apps. VSML seeks to better understand this explosion in social media images and its impact on society. A key aim of the lab is to develop new methods and analytical approaches by bringing together expertise from a range of academic disciplines as well as industry. Academic disciplines represented in the lab include: Media & Communication Studies, Visual Culture, Software Studies, Sociology, Computer Science and Information Science. The lab team involves academics and industry researchers from The University of Sheffield, Manchester School of Art (MMU), University of Wolverhampton, Royal Holloway, University of London, and Pulsar.
Florencia Aliberti: Buenos Aires, resident in Barcelona, 1986. She primarily works within the domain of film / documentary and experimental video. Her proposals lay between the format of projection and exposure, passing through both cinemas and exhibition spaces. Part of her work explores forms of ownership on the audio-visual, from analogue to digital, creating new narratives for existing images. Her latest works of appropriation have focused on new forms of self-representation and exhibition of the private on the Internet.
DONE is a project promoted by the Foto Colectania Foundation with the collaboration of the Fundació Banc Sabadell and with the support of the Dirección General de Política e Industrias Culturales y del Libro del Ministerio de Cultura.
