LIVE-ISH

LIVE-ISH is a digital publication of design research that explores how livestreaming media has crafted an emergent “livestyle;” a way of living within the world that has become increasingly influenced by our 24/7 screen-based interfaces. Developed as a media category in the 1990s, the term “lifestyle” was popularized by Martha Stewart books, magazines, tv shows, recipes, home decor, fashion, advice… Today we purchase “experiences”: all-encompassing 24/7 events (and everything within it) that are initiated by the screen. Experiences that are found, activated, watched, played, shared, tracked, favorited, followed, friended, and designed by “user experience” (UX) designers.
