As an artist and scholar, I employ interdisciplinary methods as an approach to expand upon the cultural dialog of digital media and contemporary art. My experiences and methodologies from my current Internet-based collection project are documented and presented with social media to communicate my research. Follow the blog at http://carrieidaedinger.blogspot.com/
The significance of these collections is to present the social interactions between people and objects. The concept of the social interaction between people and objects is to present the functionality of the interaction instead of putting the main focus on the object alone. I borrow from material culture methodologies to contribute to the forming of the collections. The context of the collection is defined by social and culturally based research as well as experiential research of the interactions. Each of the collections contributes to how fundamental the interaction between a person and an object is to consistent consumption in the material world.
