Shelf is an algorithmic art project that shows how derivative is intellectual work. It simply juxtaposes the work I have done since kiddingthecity started (2007) with a clever wordpress plugin, Zotpress. This uses an Application Programming Interface (API) to connect kiddingthecity, in real time, to an evolving Zotero database.
Zotero is a Free and Open Source, cross-platform, reference manager that integrates with your browser and word processor—here intended as an approximation to knowledge in the age of ‘smart’ technology, ranking and metrics →→→ see the sidebar ‘What I have been reading’ →→→ see my entire Zotero library, linked to a number of digital devices of mine as well as to various Open Access repositories.
Shelf is a ‘smart’ academic dashboard, informing on readings and publishing performance: it is also a mild form of self-surveillance and disclosure, but the great thing is that the process is automated, no need to type anything 😎
Academic sources are extracted in real time by Zotpress. Conversely, these are stored in Zotero because of the sociological imagination I want to deliver through my papers. Shelf wants to highlight this dynamic relationship which is other than, say, a List of Publications – e.g., Zotero 5.0 offers now a ‘My Publications’ folder which automatically publishes it to your Zotero profile page, see mine here.
Through Shelf, kiddingthecity has been providing Open Access since 2007 under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
