The Real Time of Justin Tv: Notes on The Senses of Live Broadcast on The Web
The article discusses the practices of Justin TV, a live broadcast platform in which some concepts that are important to television, such as real time, broadcaster, viewer, and audio-visual community, are reinterpreted. There are ethical and aesthetic differences between the modes of signifying the real time on the web that need to be better understood. Scenes unfolding in front of fixed cameras displayed on the platform and commented by groups of users resemble Vilém Flusser’s concept of post-history, in which history accelerates toward devices to establish technical images. In a remix of imaginary notions of the beginnings of television and of the concepts of web 2.0, Justin TV becomes interesting to think about the ways in which contemporaneity experiments an audio visualization of culture.MONTAÑO, Sonia.
