D A Y D R E A M • P R O J E C T…

What began as my ITP thesis, the Daydream Project is home to my previous interactive experience as well as some thoughts, ambitions and accolades. My ITP Thesis Project was a mobile (J2ME) application that downloaded and played a video from the web. As part of the research, I began looking at the aesthetics of media distribution and user created submissions. In 2005, the term social media hadn’t been coined, YouTube was investor owned, and cellphones had just reached 100% market penetration. My D A Y D R E A M • M A N I F E S T O speaks about video aesthetics for 2005 by comparing it to the film and photography revolution a century before.
