The aim of the project is to investigate, by means of a test case, how social media can be used for artistic research. Moreover, we want to investigate which social media is available/suitable and whether they can do more than just play a supporting role. Can social media also facilitate or even stimulate peer review?
Is it possible to reach a larger audience on the basis of social media and get quicker feedback, even before the end of the research? Can it support and/or replace the academic way of archiving and publishing? Will the collection, publication and archiving of research data via social media be easier to manage for the researcher himself? Can these media also be sufficiently adapted to the needs of the researcher/research? Can there be links and networks between research groups, with other research/researchers?
In addition, the project wants to investigate the possible impact in terms of copyright, privacy and owner ship.
