Artist Ryan Trecartin on a new platform created with David Karp, River The Net:
[T]he online tool strings together 10 second videos uploaded by users through tag alone. Only three tags can be given to any video. ….. “When you go to the website, there’s no interface, you’re immediately confronted with a video playing full-screen. It picks a tag randomly, and follows that tag. Basically, it creates a situation where there’s a movie made by everyone and the plot arc is the life of a tag.”
Will be interesting to see if the experience can live on tag alone.
