    Synopsis: How do people share aspects of the self amid today's complex and shifting media landscape? This ethnographic project uses YouTube videos, interviews, and observations at meet-ups to explore the rise and fall of YouTube as a social media site. Recorded over the course of several years, the film provides a unique diachronic look at the dynamics and life cycle of online sites and discusses people's digital migration patterns. It offers insight into how mediated friendships and forms of emotional support weave on- and offline in ways that endure beyond the life cycle of a particular site, or even of participants themselves. In our increasingly post human era, it is particularly interesting to hear YouTubers reflect on their vision of their digital legacies after their deaths.

    This film was selected for screening in Paris at Ethnografilm, a festival showcasing ethnographic and academic films that visually depict social worlds.

  • Open Video Fieldnotes Play all

    One of the goals of this site is to make some of my field notes publicly available. Most of the time, anthropological field notes are kept private, and papers are written on the basis of them and other data. I'd like to experiment with providing samples of open video field notes that I record as I study YouTube and the video blogging community. What do you think of this idea?

  • Places in the Vlogosphere Play all

    Despite the prediction that we would all be meat puppets jacked into cyberspace by now, place actually still plays a prominent role in our lives. Philosophers have suggested that we are not coherent as human beings except in terms of how we exist in a place. This series of videos includes some of my more personal engagements with places that I found interesting.

  • Art in Focus Play all

    We are surrounded by art in many ways. I find myself interested in making videos about public art, and wondering how people who live in different places respond to this art, especially over time. Does it become an invisible figure in the landscape? Or do people find themselves rediscovering it and enjoying it in new ways?
