In this article, we present the potentials of Google Vision API-based networks for studying online images, covering three important modalities as part of a critical visual methodology: the content of the image itself, its specific ‘audiencing’ through web references (or image metadata), and the sites of image circulation. First, we conceptually and...

In November 2018, after being suspended from Apple’s App Store for hosting child pornography, Tumblr announced its decision to ban all NSFW (not safe/suitable for work) content with the aid of machine-learning classification. The decision to opt for strict terms of use governing nudity and sexual depiction was as fast as it was drastic, leading to...

O artigo apresenta resultados de estudo sobre Interfaces de Programação de Aplicações (API, na sigla em inglês) de visão computacional e sua interpretação de representações em bancos de imagens. A visão computacional é um campo das ciências da computação dedicado a desenvolver algoritmos e heurísticas para interpretar dados visuais, mas são ainda i...

This paper explores the anomalous role that today’s social media environments play in the dynamics of affective amplification through viral visual content. Affected by the post 9/11 logic of media securitization, the circulation of manipulated images and internet memes has created an atmosphere of controversial sentiments and irrational facts. The...

With the digitization of the entertainment industry, our everyday media encounters become increasingly data-saturated. In the framework of the digital attention economy, lifestyle technologies stimulate and modulate intensive participation on a regular basis. By conceptualizing the American streaming brand and content provider Netflix as a networke...

In our project, we explored the involvement of bots in the black market of the social media attention economy. Based on our investigation of various intensities and qualities of automated engagement on Instagram and Tumblr, we developed a situated understanding of this market as an ensemble of software affordances, human interests and techniques of...

This project proposes to investigate Vision APIs as research devices while experimentally applying them for the study of visual representation of countries through image results of demonyms (brazilian, portuguese, american etc). This double-ended approach is based on STS’s principle of symmetry, which takes an inquiry as concerning both the object...

Zeitgenössische Fernsehserien mit ihren text-, kontext- und medienübergreifenden Erweiterungen bringen dynamisch vernetzte materiell-semiotische Erfahrungswelten hervor. Ihre konfliktreich artikulierte Eingebundenheit in alltägliche Lern- und Transformationsprozesse wird im Folgenden mit dem Blick auf performative, partizipative und interaktive Dim...

Das Verhältnis des populärkulturellen Mainstreams zu Subkulturen ist stets umkämpft und bezieht sich auf ein komplexes Feld von kulturellen, sozialen, gesellschaftlichen und ökonomischen Praktiken. Was aktuell als Mainstream gilt, definiert sich immer wieder aufs Neue über subkulturelle Entwicklungen.

Das intellektuelle Projekt von Cultural Studies ist vielfältig. Dies hängt nicht zuletzt damit zusammen, dass sich seit den Anfängen der Cultural Studies in Großbritannien Ende der 1950er Jahre ein offenes Feld transdisziplinärer Auseinandersetzung mit Kultur, Medien und Gesellschaft herausgebildet hat. Ihr Ziel besteht darin, in der Auseinanderset...

Die Auseinandersetzung mit Fernsehserien spielt eine wichtige Rolle im Leben vieler Menschen weltweit: Die Serien wiederholen und entwickeln sich, sind Teil der Medienroutine, begleiten uns im Alltag. Was sie erzählen, entsteht daher nicht unerwartet oder zufällig, sondern verweist auf eine langfristige Ausprägung populärkultureller Ausdrucksformen...
Article
Following Nicolas Bourriaud, art is a state of encounter which keeps together and provides a space of relations. Unfortunately, though, he pays not enough attention to the lived experiences of the participants enabled by this relationality. So the question we are interested in is not what ‘is’ relational art. It is neither about approaching relatio...

Drawing on our explorations of bots on Instagram and Tumblr, we propose a critical framework for investigating bot engagement as an ensemble of software affordances, human interests and techniques of mediation. Our aim is to develop novel articulations of methods and theory corresponding with the technological and societal entanglements constituting bot engagement. Using digital methods, media theory and internet ethnography, we argue that the study of social automation should consider three interconnected dimensions: i) the role of web or mobile applications, ii) the shifts in societal concerns around bot ‘imagination’ or how users relate to #bots through tagging practices, and finally, iii) bot agency or what we can learn from detecting and studying visual and textual content provided by social bot accounts. In order to account for implications and challenges of these dimensions for the understanding of digital society, we propose a network perspective on the ephemeral dynamics of “stick and flow” that constitute the ways in which bots operate on social media platforms and beyond. *This project is supported by the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS), Bochum, Germany. https://www.cais.nrw/arbeitsgemeinschaften/critical-framework-for-investigating-bot-engagement/
