The art collective Jodi’s J_O_D_I Delicious account contains—as of the publishing of this blog post—3,512 bookmarks collected between February 20, 2008 to the current day—March 16, 2010.
This averages-out to between 4 and 5 bookmarks marked by the artists per day—everyday—for the past 2 years or so.
Today J_O_D_I has, thus far, bookmarked 16 sites.
Each site depicts images or conversations about images related to the archiving of imagery.
Whether it be in an online database, art collection, or photographic contact sheet, the thread running through the subject matter of each of these bookmarks is image archiving.
By making an archive of images that refer to image archives, they make a work of self-reflexive art.
As time goes on and one sees Jodi’s bookmarks refer to the same theme again and again, one sees not bookmarks, but the apparatus of the entire del.icio.us platform: an archive.
