Launched to the public today, Art Rules is a new social campaign and digital forum devised to encourage discussion around contemporary art.
Created by the London-based Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) this forum is fun!
Read brief answers to the question, “What is your definition of art?” posted by bigwig art-worldlings and the rest of us. The answers pop up in black bubbles and you can agree or disagree with a click.
It’s a visual/language/thinking experience.
Here’s more, explained by ArtDaily:
“Created by digital pioneers SapientNitro, Art Rules will enable people to debate what defines contemporary art directly with artists, curators and critics from all over the world, engaging with key figures from art, film, architecture, performance and other art forms. It brings together the contemporary art community with audiences to debate the question “what is art?” and share their definitions of contemporary art “rules”.
Every rule is open for discussion as users can respond with a comment, share socially or simply “agree” or “disagree” with each other’s rules. The conversation bubbles up, literally, as each rule appears in a bubble on the homepage, pushing others to the sides and thereby creating a visual experience of the conversation.
The more people agree with a rule, the larger the bubble will appear on the page, creating a visual hierarchy from which users can instantly identify the most popular discourse. Rules are shareable through Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, encouraging users to extend the discussion to their own social networks and create a far reaching lively debate. “
Add your own “Rule”.
I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours.
