The work presented in this thesis examines aspects of the larger theme of the rapid introduction of technology into mainstream culture and the media in general. Specifically, I am examining the social effect of networking and communications systems, particularly the rules and protocols they exhibit to bring about these relationships and the integration of networks into the greater population within the last 15 to 20 years. I intend to accomplish this by presenting several projects I have created that provoke and challenge these systems in such a way as to point toward vulnerabilities in these methods of interaction and to propose alternative forms in which they could be manifested. Overall, the projects I will present in this dissertation challenge existing methods of interaction with online systems and the social relationships they both support and perpetuate.
