WHAT IN TARNATION IS AN AGGREGATORY?

AGGREGATORY is a place where an aggregate is made.

Aggregate is a whole formed by combining several elements.

This aggregatory is a foundry to aggregate the work of digital arts. It is based on the web 5.0 in 5D.

THE WEB 5.0

The Web 2.0 is based on sites whos perpetuation of online identity is the equivalent of space full of high school students talking at once. The Web 5.0 is about what we do. The Web 3.0 and 4.0 have been ignored so that some of us have the steps available to evolve to 5.0.

5D

The following is an outline of the Aggregatory’s 5 dimesions 5D.

0D

THE INFORMATION

Reference information in the form of web pages, documents, forums, images, pinboards, etc.

1D

THE CODE

All the apps, scripts, plugins, engines and code which execute the fun to come.

2D

THE IMAGE

Vectors, images, textures, etc.

3D

THE MODEL

The model and modeling and/or sculpting and the material.

4D

THE ANIMATION

Animation, movies, keyframing, post production, kinematics, etc

5D

NOTES

STRUCTURE

I have attempted to build a structure which enables a form of faceless collaboration or kit bashing. It assumes that the end result of producing is the work not the individual. An artist who does not employ the ideas, information or assets we share as a community on the internet, is an artist using a computer not a digitial artist. This is an extra step in making the work available for everyones usage but allowing the work to be improved, modified, forked, or placed in larger projects. While maintaining assets as individuals in the same way the web 2.0 regards the person.

This site structure is being attempted on Joomla, Community Builder, k2, Projectfork and artisteer.

LEGAL/MORAL QUAGMIRE

It is intended that individuals distinguish themselves by their love of what we do and how active they are with us. Not any industrial role or classification of human beings users. Things are all white or clear when were a bunch of kids playing with our apps and sharing our fun. Things get grey when one of them produces a television commercial with an asset which does not comprise the entire work. Our structure happily is focused on how this aggregates on the playground. In the black is those whom package the works of others for financial gain.
