Documenting Our Experiences

Hannah S. Ostroff, on Twitter, responded to Arielle Pardes’ article last week in Wired about Instagram-friendly art installations:

Let’s stop looking down on how people experience the world around them […]

People take photos to document their lives and share them with friends. This was true before Instagram. Time to embrace it.

Social media won’t put an end to educational exhibitions, thoughtful discourse. It can open up the conversation in new ways.

An always-connected camera on all of us affords such a great opportunity to artists and institutions like museums and galleries. I look forward to a new generation of exhibitions that are more cognizant of this change.
