Wanna come play?

Death of The Internet: This is me.

Briefing/Background: We are entering a world absorbed in social networking. A world that want's to share a global network of friends, promote shared interests, views and create new digital worlds where a minority can grow and survive without fear or intervention. The fact that masses of Web pages, server space, personal time and effort is applied to network software websites like: Facebook, Myspace, YouTube and Last.FM. Peer-to-peer networks and other file distribution software such as the popular Bit Torrent and Limewire proves that people are willing to invest heavily in a better quality of 'digital' life. This is an ever-growing market of interest in a world that wants to be reacquainted through Email, RSS, Blogs and Podcasting. What if digital networking didn't exsist and yet we still yearned this new-found obsession to communicate on a global scale? What if it was in an analogue format? A 'Print-Based' promotional poster? A Royal Mail-pot-ready artefact that documented you, your interest's and fears. A single artwork that illustrated who you are and why?
