Can the Internet be considered as a new territory? If so, who does it belong to? Considering that new technologies are transforming our exchanges, our relationships and even the distance that exists between everyone; That they invite to new places, with their own rules and norms; That they also allow the emergence of distinct cultures; What is diversity on the Web?
It is with these questions in mind that we initiated a serie of creative workshops with students from Kiuna Institution. The goal? Engaging a collective reflexion ruled by openness and cooperative vision on the place and influence of the Internet and new technologies in our current lives. Following the various meetings, the students were invited to create an artistic web page using Photoshop program. The resulting works undoubtedly underline the need to define oneself, each in our own way, to assert ourselves in an hyperpresent world.
