Paper Beats Internet is an “analog” social networking site that uses hand-rendered drawings as communications tools. Users post an initial drawing on the Paper Beats Internet website, and others create comment and response drawings that work off of the first drawing’s theme. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, the time and care that goes into doing a drawing adds a sense of thought, warmth and depth to the usually quick, off-the-cuff world of social media. The project is a collaboration between the New Directions in Pictoral Design class at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and a group of invited collaborators.
