Title: 2003 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
Authors: Coleman, Beth
Goldkrand, Howard
Issue Date: 15-Nov-2006
Abstract: Our project, Information Portraits, is an exploration of the idea that portraiture is no longer 'still life' but can be a form of dynamic distributed network. The Information Portrait project uses new media as a way to augment, converge, and experience representations of self with our shifting patterns in taste and habit. The Information Portrait project consists of three modes toward production: the mobile media studio (a real object), the space of communication (person-toperson), and interactivity (person-to-media). The media performance is the phase in the project during which the materials that make up the Information Portraits are created. The final aspect of the project is the translation of the material developed out of the performances into networked Information Portraits, which are then exhibited on a Web site. The Information Portraits are, in effect, a mapping of various individuals and their neighborhoods. The gesture is to recreate a context while creating a new media experience.
