With "A Social Event Archive," Paul Druecke sought to create a sociological typology that might capture how social interactions are collectively photographed, shared, and commemorated. The project predates Instagram and Facebook but predicted the blurring of private and public that such social media platforms allow.
What was the first image YOU shared on a social media site? Using #ASocialEventArchive describe why you originally posted this picture, what event it captures, and how it is different from what you might share now. "My first Facebook profile pic from 2008 is a stark contrast to the red square I use today. When I first joined Facebook, I shared personal posts (like this picture taken after a picnic in Point Reyes, California) with friends. Now that I am more aware of how much the personal and professional intersect online, I’m hesitant to post private information. I almost never share pictures of myself and would never post something so spontaneous now. – Lisa Sutcliffe, Curator of Photography and Media Art 📷 @ljssf
