The people’s panorama

Entitled The People’s Panorama, the giant collage has been masterminded by London artist Ben Johnson and comprises five panels measuring 4ft x 4ft to create a large panoramic image of London.

The artist, who is known for his architectural painting and city commissions around the world, based the work on a photograph he took from the top of Canary Wharf. He divided the image into 1280 squares measuring three inches each. Members of the public were then invited to contribute a pencil drawing on an A4 paper based on a specific section of the picture.

The People’s Panorama was created for the national launch of The Big Draw 2006 held at Somerset House last September, when visitors, led by architect Lord Foster, added their piece of London to the panorama. It then moved to the Museum of London for four days and many contributors returned to see the work develop and reach its completion.

"The project was made with huge enthusiasm," says Ben Johnson.

"There was a great sense of concentration as people did their individual squares and then a sense of pride at being part of a collective experience.

"There was not one bad drawing among them and each was unique and special to the person that made it. Even the initially reluctant surprised themselves and many people’s enthusiasm to do multiple squares had to be restrained. It truly is The Peoplea€™s Panorama.’

"convergence culture"

a€oeConvergence does not depend on any specific delivery mechanism. Rather, convergence represents a paradigm shift a€" a move from medium-specific content toward content that flows across multiple media channels, toward the increased interdependence of communications systems, toward multiple ways of accessing media content, and toward ever more complex relations between top-down corporate media and bottom-up participatory culture.a€A (243) thesis statement

a€oeWe are in a critical moment of transition during which old rules are open to change and companies may be forced to renegotiate their relationship to consumers.a€A (243)

a€oeRather than talking about personal media, perhaps we should be talking about communal mediaa€A (245)

a€oeJust as studying fan culture helped us to understand the innovations that occur on the fringes of the media industry, we may also want to look at the structures of fan communities as showing us new ways of thinking about citizenship and collaboration.a€A (246) BIG THESIS

a€oeThat is why it is so important to fight against the corporate copyright regime, to argue against censorship and moral panic that would pathologize these emerging forms of participation, to publicize the best practices of these online communities, to expand access and participation to groups that are otherwise being left behind, and to promote forms of media literacy education that help all children to develop the skills needed to become full participants in their culture.a€A (248) ADVOCACY THESIS

a€oeA politics of confrontation must give way to one focused on tactical collaboration.a€A (250)

a€oeConcentrated power is apt to remain concentrated. But we will see adhocracy principles applied to more and more different kinds of projectsa€A (256-7). Yes, but what about sabotage?

a€oeparticipation becomes an important political right.a€A (257). Yes. Why isna€™t there more of this in the book?

a€oeThe ideal of the informed citizen is breaking down because there is simply too much for any individual to know. The idea of monitorial citizenship depends on developing new skills in collaboration and a new ethic of knowledge sharing that will allow us to deliberate together.a€A (259). ok

a€oeOne of the ways we can shape the future of media culture is by resisting such disempowering approaches to media literacy education. We need to rethink the goals of media education so that young people can come to think of themselves as cultural producers and participants and not simply as consumers, critical or otherwise.a€A (259). Call to rethink media literacy

MESSAGE: rules redrawn. Negotiation. Resurgence of communal culture. Political implications. Key prescriptions = advocacy. Not sure how his corporate readers would react. Focus on negotiation, but doesna€™t jive with hardline advocacy. Convergence will save us all. We just need to help it happen.
