Somebody Did Something. Then The People Came. (2014)

A video blog with robots as actors and social media content One year long daily updates on Youtube

Full Description

Motorized wooden toys reuse so-called user generated content for an absurd play. The project is a tap hole of social media.

New online technologies have created countless opportunities for citizen participation in the public debate and a potential to influence public opinion. Web 2.0 environments allow mass media audiences to publish their own content, creating a new paradigm of “produsage” with significant consequences on social practices, media and democratic society itself. This output is the raw material for Somebody did something. Then the people came.
