My “Tube” identifies images (particularly those of amateur and pro-am “tubes”) as image events: alternative means with which we generate new traces of meaning in both our online and offline realities. Rather than transmit a series of authorial objectives in a traditional analysis, I play with platforms that offer permutational, electrate spaces with which people may disrupt the otherwise oppressive boundaries of mechanical, text-based societies. My “tube” is not a rebel yell for the complete destruction of the literate apparatus; it is a performance that complicates, as much as it communicates, the transforming mediums with[in] which we can now participate.
