On July 26, artists and special guests will join ForYourArt and Hans Ulrich Obrist at the Million Dollar Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles for a Mini-Marathon. Participants will discuss Instagram, an online platform that collapses a vast variety of creative impulses into one specifically undefined, unbounded space. Guests will present photos from any Instagram feed, or their own, to illustrate approaches to using the app, and to discuss how it functions within their individual practices. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Program starts at 7:30 pm.

undefined & unbounded? jesus guys
instagram is an application limited to mobile operating systems, which are themselves limited to certain mobile devices, which operate over mobile networks with data or through wireless internet devices. images on instagram are presented in a unified format, with limited pre-defined filters, and are organized according to hashtags. users of instagram choose what other instagram users they follow. people who do not have instagram can track instagram users via their internet browsers, but cannot follow them. instagram images tend to follow standardized style guidelines that shift according to subject matter or hashtag organization. the language used in comments reflects general language rules in social media comments, which again one only has access to if one has a smartphone or computer with access to the internet.
so yeah, undefined and unbounded
