Image making on social image networks, mainly but not exclusively Instagram, has become completely fascinating. I have been looking at the various scenes in depth for months, and I’ve come to some interesting and unexpected conclusions which I will develop further.

Instagram et al are every bit for me as exciting as Twitter was in 2007, or the web in 1994, except that because images are being shared rather than words, and because it’s mobile, it is rapidly developing a global, common visual language which reaches beyond the constraints of words contained by languages, and feeds into a shared experience of the world.

I am thinking about the implicatations of shaping this rapidly evolving communications network.

The possibilities are very exciting.
