Have you ever shared a car ride, lent someone a book, made a mix tape, or traded clothing? Then you’re part of the WEconomy, a new economic model where communities of consumers share, swap or rent goods as opposed to owning them.

The Public Private at Parsons The New School for Design | Art & Education

The Public Private at Parsons The New School for Design | Art & Education | Think Thank | Scoop.it

The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons The New School for Design presents The Public Private, the first major New York exhibition of contemporary art that explores the impact of social media and new technologies on the relationship between the public and private realm.

 

“Social media has radically redefined the boundaries between the public and the private,” said curator Christiane Paul, an associate professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School and the adjunct curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art. “The messages, images, as well as likes and dislikes we share with friends and families are accessible to corporations and subject to commercial and social data mining. Our daily moves are open to various forms of tracking. What was once considered personal and private has become increasingly public in a cultural shift, entailing a reformulation of our identity.”

 

The artworks brought together in The Public Private—several presented for the first time in the United States—address these issues from psychological, legal, and economic perspectives and use strategies ranging from hacking to self-surveillance to reflect upon the profound changes in our understanding of identity, personal boundaries, and self-representation....

Le tourisme expérientiel en région

Le tourisme expérientiel en région | Think Thank | Scoop.it

Le tourisme expérientiel contribue à la diversité des offres touristiques des régions et à leur développement économique. Il participe également au rayonnement et à l’attractivité des territoires en mettant en valeur le patrimoine ainsi que des entreprises et travailleurs locaux issus de différents secteurs d’activité qui font parfois la renommée de ces régions. Dans certains cas, on va jusqu’à qualifier de durable le développement touristique provenant de ces expériences, notamment lorsqu’elles se réalisent dans le respect de l’environnement, dans l’équité sociale et qu’elles contribuent à la pérennité économique des entreprises.

Pour séduire le voyageur, prenez-le par les sentiments

Pour séduire le voyageur, prenez-le par les sentiments | Think Thank | Scoop.it

On ne choisit pas un hôtel comme on achète une étagère. Les critères et les motivations sont très différents, et l’implication émotive est aussi beaucoup plus élevée dans le premier cas. Dans le choix d’une chaîne hôtelière, la composante émotionnelle serait responsable de près de 70% de la décision. Pour rejoindre cette fibre émotive, certains ont recours au marketing olfactif, d’autres jouent la carte de la personnalisation ou font l’usage du storytelling pour toucher le client.

At the Metropolitan Museum of Artthe annual roof garden exhibition won’t require sneakers. Nor will it be the athletically challenging experience it has sometimes been in the past. In 2010 visitors were invited to walk on cresting pathways fashioned from bamboo, the creation of the artist twinsMike and Doug Starn; last year the Argentine artist Tomás Saraceno presented one of his “Cloud City” installations, a constellation of mirrored modules that people could climb inside.
