The Inventory / Peter Martin and Orla Foster (2012)
The Inventory is a fanzine compilation of digital artefacts produced online, seeking to explore the relationship between user-generated content and the ways in which we digitally present ourselves. How do the images we upload, the links we share and the comments we post enable us to subtly position ourselves as successful human beings?
Artists and staff involved in the festival were invited to share their digital worlds and social networking profiles for Peter Martin and Orla Foster to reconstruct through the methodology of a fanzine writer. By extracting the concept of digital positioning, Martin and Foster aimed to mediate this medium into a new form for evaluation.
The fanzines were distributed for free throughout AND Festival 2012 in a limited run of 400 copies.
