Historiography Tracer explores how media images and their meanings fluctuate in the ecology of the world wide web. Mixing theoretical enquiry with speculative code, our aim is to plot possible methods for tracking appropriations, memes and mutations of images online. The project connects the ethical with the technical in order to understand the social implications of images becoming data.
Historiography Tracer's outcomes are not clearly defined, meaning we’ do not really have an end in sight. Instead, it is an ongoing research trajectory with different contributors and threads. Filtering through various sites and contexts, each phase of the project builds on the previous. For continuity, this weblog is a repository for documentation, interviews, essays and code collected along the way.
