Abandoned Detroit

Collected by: San Jose State University, School of Information

Archived since: Sep, 2014

Description:

This collection is comprised of a modest sampling of sites that feature images, articles, and commentary reflecting diverse perspectives on photographing Detroit’s urban and industrial ruins. Photographs of abandoned and decaying spaces in Detroit, also known as “ruin porn,” have become the poster child for industrial decline in the United States. The term ruin porn is attributed to James Griffioen, Detroit resident and photographer, who used the term during a 2009 interview with Vice magazine to describe journalists flocking to Detroit following the 2008 financial crisis. Griffioen argued that these journalists neglected the complexity of the city’s economic problems and overlooked examples of health and growth by presenting the images out of context and through a prism of stylized photography to manipulate the narrative that the media presents about the city. As the economic health of Detroit begins to rebound, these discussions will be a part of its history; the possible transformation of these buildings and spaces from ruin to reclamation will make documenting its progression even more important.

Just KITTEN Around!

Collected by: San Jose State University, School of Information

Archived since: Sep, 2014

Description:

From Grumpy Cat to I Can Has Cheeseburger, America’s obsession with cat humor has reached its pinnacle with the emergence of the internet and digital technologies. In particular, feline enthusiasts have found the perfect outlet for their special brand of humor in social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and various blogs have become a vast digital repository for photographs of cats with spaghetti on their heads, videos of cats performing martial arts, and memes of cats delivering (in broken English) the clever comebacks as only they can. The aim of this collection is to preserve the phenomenon of internet cat humor by archiving those particular websites that capture the sheer lunacy, utter enjoyment, and social commentary of felines on the web through photographs, animation, video and games. More importantly, these websites represent the unique bond that humans have shared with cats over thousands of years. Although on the surface, many of them might seem utterly ridiculous, these websites capture the love and devotion humans have for cats, and stand to tell us a little something about ourselves. If they make you laugh at least once, they have done their job. We think your laughter, love for cats, and the enjoyment you derive from watching cats bounce across your computer screen are worth preserving. We hope that you agree.

Video Games and Gaming Culture

Collected by: San Jose State University, School of Information

Archived since: Oct, 2015

Description:

This collection documents some of the conversations around long-term preservation (and the lack thereof) of video games, especially online-only ones; publisher trends; video game longevity vs. obsolescence; and other aspects of video games and gaming culture. Reddit and Voat are internet forums that have developed strong communities of gamers and, to a certain extent, video game creators and publishers. Twitch is a vibrant community of gamers that also features content creators who stream their experiences with video games and often get other gamers involved; this environment fosters communal gaming that is distinct from physically co-located, console-based multiplayer gaming and from online multiplayer gaming. Video game critics and gamer rights advocates Ross Scott and John Bain (aka Total Biscuit, The Cynical Brit, or Total Hilibut) foster, lead, and contribute to these discussions immensely through their text- and video-based commentary and creative content. With this assortment of websites, the curators attempt to demonstrate the vibrant, complex discussions being documented in 2015 around video games, gaming culture, and these communities' concerns with the future of the medium.
