I don't know if this can help the discussions but I can give you two
examples of «new media usage» that, in my opinion, touch these topics:
You may find the first one in
where you can see some of the «media cultural networking» that Giles
Lane, Orlagh Wood and Alice Angus are doing. Have a closer look, for
example, into the <social tapestries> attempt.
The second example is more experimental or «raggy» and, we can find
many similar examples in different contexts of video art, but I would
like to point some that were made by our research students trying to
achieve an interartistic, social and cognitive perspective, like the
one present here:
All the best.
