Hyperallergic is a four year old Williamsburg art blog that, in a sign of the times, does its fair share of technology coverage.
Like a lot of art blogs, Hyperallergic appears to be a little tough to define, covering all kinds of art, as well as the business of art and the context that waves of art are getting created in. That has brought them to the subject of how technology impacts art, uses art and how innovation has changed the business of art. Here are a few pieces from the site that overlap with the key subjects of interest to Technically Brooklyn readers:
- An extended look at photography online, with a special focus on Tumblr.
- On whether or not snapping cell phone photos of museum pieces detracts from the museum experience.
- Using genetic engineering to design a chair.
Underscoring the point that the site is making by referring to itself as a “blogozine,” Hyperallergic proved that it’s more than pixels in the cloud this summer by organizing the first ever Tumblr Art Symposium, in collaboration with the company. Coverage of Tumblr has been extensive since. We especially liked the creepy historical GIFs.
