“We chose to create an Instagram page as our artefact because it is an easily- accessible social media platform that easily allows for the uploading, distribution and discovery of images and content […] We chose Instagram so we could access more people in our target audience – as younger people tend to appreciate street art more than their parent generations. Traditional art galleries often lack modern pieces such as these, and as such we believe Instagram is a better platform for documenting street art because it is a free- to-access gallery for all, predominantly used by younger people. This is especially true as traditional art galleries appear to be used less and less by younger people, preferring to turn to the internet or social media to find art that appeals to them.”
