Digitally Inside Out - Re-reading the Book

Re-evaluation

When I reevaluated the site various things were obvious. While the source material was interesting at least to me, the finished site was visually lacking and held no real link to the source. The project statement already outlines the difficulties encountered. I decided on two objectives for the reevaluation. The first was to improve the visual and interactive aspects of the site. The second was to link the project more with my 'object' ie my projected 'performance' (see statement). I think the new site is a better version for interactivity and for visual design.
As to the second objective:
The main idea behind the site is still far from implemented. The problem has yet to be solved for me as to how 'frames of reference' might be interpreted.
The reference to Poison Girls' 'persons unknown' is in itself a reference to the source portfolio (music/cultural influences in the sketch book). It links strongly with the concept of a 'frame of reference'. Our current frame of reference is the digitisation of society and everything in it.
While again the end product became a flippant interpretation of the source material (I was not able to go further within the time limit), the possibility of interpreting the project in a more serious vein is left for the future. For all that, I think the new site is a substantial improvement on the original.
