Concepts of identity are inherently fluid and flexible and our understandings of learning are becoming less strongly bonded to institutions and specific educational spaces. This is a landscape where the form is contingent on the beholder. A place where learning opportunities shift and adjust to the learner.
Not blogs but an atmospheric art piece from the Earstudio project that captures textual snippets from chatrooms and Internet fora around the world and delivers these to multiple screens ... words and phrases articulated by a disembodied voice, punctuated by zen like tones that adds to the mysterious temple like space created by the installation.

Where blogs meet art or is that art meets blogs? Idle browsing on a Sunday afternoon, sweepinging through countless blogs and writing this off as research activity as opposed to pure dilettante-ism. But came to a halt at the Understanding VORN project. Easy to lose track of time cycling through the images captured and updated from blogs across the world through this clever litle engine that picks up images tagged with the letters, you guessed it, V O R and N. Highly recommended for Friday afternoon stress relief.
