Michele is writing about art, and young people here.
She writes about FLickr and Manga and other phenomena in which young people inscribe their identities into digital stuff.
I am interested in this too, but I am also interested in intergenerational and long-term stuff as well.
For example, Zahir's stuff which I wrote about here draws on the visual affordances of the web but also on Islamic cultures and identities which are not so much about the 'new'.
I wrote a chapter in here about this, and I think, while Michele has pointed to something very interesting about the web, there are ways in which sedimented identities also re-surface in art.
I am interested in narratives of migration and ways in which young people both take on long-term narratives, shaped by parents and grandparents, and merge it with new stuff.
Grafitti and Islamic art.

and yes, even better, here in Blackburn - digital player is ahead of me.
