Over the past 10 years I have documented word-based social media and technological observations, and stored them on a dedicated private Blogger site. Recently, after witnessing the new roll out of the colour/design themed Facebook "status updates", I have chosen to publicize these memorandums by utilizing the Facebook platform as a form of presentation. I create the pieces on my personal Facebook page, post them, screen grab the "status update" and select and crop the rectangles on Photoshop.
There is an automatic connection with the present/immediate theme of a status update and the action of revealing my archive through such a platform. It is the moment when the personal becomes public, but then proceeds to go past the social normality of a status update, sometimes with uncomfortable or redundant connotations. A contemporary moment in media theory; the personal dissemination of information through technology.
