Scary Gorgeous by the dance company RashDash

"Scary Gorgeous and it's about the pressure on young women to appear sexually available and post provocative pictures of themselves on the web, and also about how sexual relationships are damaged when our imaginations become colonised by pornographic images."

(Lyn Gardner, 15 August 2011)

Sadie Benning's Fisher Price PXL-2000 confessions

"Eighteen–year–old Sadie Benning recorded thoughts and images, from 1989–92, of her nascent lesbianism with the help of a Fisher Price Pixelvision camera. Portrays the space of Sadie's bedroom, scrawled notes, and defiant expressions which mark her confessional, in–your–face style."

Fictional web series exploits YouTube 'video response' feature

"It began with a lonely girl reaching out to the world from her bedroom. lonelygirl15 flipped on her webcam on June 16th, 2006, and in the course of a few short months millions rallied around her cry for help. Her parents followed a strange religion, the Hymn of One, and were preparing lonelygirl15, Bree, for a mysterious ceremony. With the help of her friend Daniel, and a passionate community of online friends, Bree exposed the true nature of her parent's religion, and fled for her life."
(EQAL, Inc.)

[lonelygirl15 exploits the YouTube 'video response' feature. In doing so it enables multiple independent video clips to be associated with each other to form a single interactive narrative 'web series'.]

Viral Marketing: Video-blogging Cited As Catalyst For Webcam Sales

"[Melody] Oliveria created what's known on the Internet as a 'viral video' – something that spreads as fast as the flu and gets talked about just as much. Some viral videos are goofy; some are just strange. But an increasing number are of average people talking about products they like. It's the ultimate word of mouth.

'A lot of people who saw that video probably thought you were working for Logitech,' Hughes asked Oliveria. 'Some people asked me if I was working for them, figuring I was being paid for it, but I wasn't,' she said.

But after Oliveria's viral video explosion, sales of Logitech webcams more than doubled on Amazon.com.

That gets the attention of marketers, who last year spent [USD] $12 billion on Internet advertising – up 30 percent from the year before. This was an advertisement that got results … for free.

'There's that old phrase, if you can't beat them, join them. Well, marketers are trying to join them quite desperately,' says new media consultant Joseph Jaffe."
(John Kreiser, 4 August 2006)
