Cell icons in Japan

Description of Iconology WorkShop:

Icons are deeply related with our daily life.

Icons are these images wich are used as tool, languages or attributes to manage devices and navigated inside systems such as the Web.

So the workshop I am proposing shall explore  how composed human values with icons from Web or simply from Cell phone application, such as Rss feed(Wifi), refresh symbol, stars, bubble, chains, earth, just to say few examples.example of Web Icons_2009

Notes :

Today, my work  is in the field Web art . My art research is a study about the parallel between humanism and the Web 2.0 culture.

To figure out the humanism form, my approach consists in a constant observation of Web culture. I visited and explored as well as I can the popular Web plateforms related with the social network. I mean : Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, Naver, Mixi, Google, Cyworld, Wikipedia, blogs and also cellphones applications related with that network.

In the same time I am work to upgrade my own understanding of humanism. That’s how I could composed my first version of Web Iconology (2 weeks  residency in Haslla art World ). This iconology reveals my present humanism’s conception.

Well, as I did that icons, I invited you to use icons from the Web and from cell phones to figure out your idea of human values.

Moreover, we can understand that icons project as a kind of Kanjis.
