You, our users, use feedly for such a wide range of jobs. Today we’d like to showcase a member of the feedly community who uses it as a curator of digital art, a burgeoning sector. Ryan Cowdrey, of the young startup 23VIVI.com, shows us how you can use feedly to leverage content as an art curator. He provides a guest post for us today.
My name is Ryan Cowdrey and I’m the Director of Curation at 23VIVI.com, an online marketplace that offers rare and limited edition digital art. For your enjoyment, I pose the question:
“With so much digital media content at one’s fingertips at all times, how does a creative individual discover the latest trends amongst all the noise out there?”
Being an art curator in the digital age requires strategic tools for effectively treading through the massive amount of content that we can access. Curators are relying more and more on internet sources to get content updates that they need on a daily basis. (Blouin ArtInfo, ArtNet News, Design Collector, Fubiz, BOMB Magazine, Colossal, to name a few.)
Not to mention that if you curate digital art exclusively, you are now relying solely on internet sources to get your art fix. The tools that one uses to augment their curation efforts will set them apart from the rest.
