Week 5 - Networked image

A networked image 

In this article it seems to be searching for an answer of  ‘is the internet dead?’. Evidently from this question it catches the attention of people from all over the world. Additionally, the internet is and always will be all over the world however on the other hand there are still people living without the internet due to their circumstances or just in my opinion running away from the ideals of normality.

The internet from this article seems to me be suggesting that it is present within society which includes surveillance and cameras within mobiles as such examples.

Another aspect of Steyerls article is the post cinema era. In that he says is that ‘some people felt that cinema is dead’. Further more, Steyerl believes that, ‘when in the course of the Bosnian war which was around the 1990s’.  Contrastingly, there are other quotes which seems shed some light on this article and how Steyerl believes that the ‘internet is dead’. I put a few that resonated with me and how I see the future of the networked image in the 21st century.

‘The all out internet condition is not an interface but an environment’.

‘networked space is itself a medium, or whatever one might call a mediums promiscous, posthumous’.

‘Circulationism is not about the art of making an image, but of post producing, launching, accelerating it’.
