What is cyberculture?

Cyberculture is the response to the ubiquitous presence and use of computers and networks in all aspects of contemporary social and cultural life, including communication, labour, education, art and entertainment, and industry among others.

Cyberculture involves both the everyday experience of networked digital technologies and the representation of the many possible futures that such technologies might contribute to making a reality.

This subject seeks to examine those structures, institutions, and technologies which bring cyberculture into effect and the sites of representation and resistance that destabilise and call it into question.

#DIGC335: Subject Outline Recap

elysium design utopia

First week of uni is out of the way and I’m feeling thoroughly disorganised. As such, I thought whipping up a quick image to print out and stick on my wall would be appropriate. The image includes all of the assessments for this subject, which, if done properly, should lead me to pass.  The visual layout for subject outlines, though consistent, can often be hard to decipher, so this is my quick recap of what I took from the subject outline .(SHOULD BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH IT; I DID NOT INCLUDE EVERYTHING, JUST THE PARTS I THOUGHT WERE MOST IMPORTANT TO ME, AND HOW I APPROACH ASSIGNMENTS, SO KEEP THAT IN MIND.)

wanted: student curation of the stack

As part of this subject, students are required to research a topic or concept from the stack and blog their research, to be formally presented in the weekly seminars. Students have the option of submitting a research report or digital artifact which mediates their analysis in a critical and detailed fashion using technologies and platforms including podcast, online video, annotated image gallery or Twitter feed for example.

One student is invited to take on the curation of the stack, which will be developed further and expanded significantly over the course of the subject as a digital artifact. The curator/s will be tasked with organising and adding to the stack, filling in links and adding topics and examples. The student will present on their research and method of organising and developing the stack during the session, which will be submitted as that students’s digital artifact, with a critical reflection of 500 words explaining and documenting their approach.
