To Be

I feel a new kind of popular internet aesthetic coming on...

The video below explains a new online social media platform designed with creativity and collaboration in mind: by bringing in elements of online images, videos and gifs as well as files already on your computer, To Be offers an easy method of creating a web scrapbook of all your favourite things.

Initial worries I have for this platform will be matters of copyright. In addition, it'll be a shame if everyone's creations start to look the same. The all-over aesthetic of the work in the video remind me of the 'hyper geography' work previously featured on gear talk by Joe Hamilton.

Can't embed the video for some reason, but would really recommend watching here:
