TAGallery 006_I tag you tag me_retagged

TAGallery by CONT3XT.NET extends the idea of a tagged exhibition and
transfers the main tasks of noncommercial exhibition spaces to the discourse
of an electronic data-space. The method of tagging allows the attribution of
artworks to different thematic fields. EXHIBITION_006 with the title "I tag
you tag me: a folksonomy of Internet art" was initiated by Luis Silva and
tagged/curated by many unknown taggers. The list of artists contributing to
the show can be extended at the original account at
http://del.icio.us/I_tag_you_tag_me (Username: I_tag_you_tag_me, Password:

I tag you tag me: a folksonomy of Internet art

Social bookmarking allows for users to easily store lists of resources
(websites, for instance) and have them available to the public, allowing
people with the same interests (or not) to share and have easy access to
relevant information on a specific subject. But the most important feature
of social bookmarking lies in the categorization of these resources by the
users themselves. Tagging is the word that comes to mind. Tagging consists
basically in the possibility these social bookmarking services have of
allowing the users not only to bookmark something, but to informally assign
tags (relevant keywords) to it, thus creating meta-data about the tagged
resources in a collective way, rather than individually, something that can
be seen as a second layer of meaning, but determined by the users rather
than the original producer of the content. This is what is called
folksonomy, a user-generated taxonomy used to retrieve and categorize web
content.

The departure idea for this project is thinking of tagging as curating. If
tagging creates meta-data about pre-existing content, it can be seen as the
creation of a discourse about it. And if that content happens to be an
online artwork, tagging both allows for a subjective juxtaposition of art
works and the elaboration of a critical discourse about it. Curating then.
But this isn't new. This is regular curating done in a schematic way, using
a different tool to get the job done. But since tagging is a social activity
in its essence, giving birth to folksonomies, it allows for social curating,
with social selection of works and social production of discourse about
them. This is what this project intends to be. Rather than traditionally
curating a show through tagging the projects with the name of the show, we
will be asking people to tag some of their favourite Internet art pieces
with a few defined tags and some that they can choose freely. The idea is
that this device will then create a folksonomic net art exhibition done
collectively by a group of people. It can be seen as a social experiment,
aiming at finding out what will that second layer of meaning be like, or if
it will work at all. A challenge then. I tag you tag me, or a random
folksonomy of Internet art. Let the tagging begin.
