AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Welcome to Online.

'A modern colosseum where stars are made and lives ruined in the blink of an eye. A ravenous beast, ever-hungry for the latest scandal or sensation. Plus there’s cat videos too!

'Here you can be anyone. Anonymous or Infamous. Famous or a fan. Everyone gets their fifteen seconds of fame. But how do you survive when suddenly you’ve got six million hits and the entire world starts watching?

'When footage taken on a school camp is uploaded online, soon after the feeding frenzy begins. As the situation spins out of control, those involved must navigate their way out of a maze of their own making, meeting the lost souls of others who have unwittingly achieved fame or infamy online.

'Working alongside playwright, Caleb Lewis, students from John Curtin College of the Arts reflect on their own online experience while trawling the net for its heroes and villains in a bid to hear their side of the story and to pose the question: What if it happened to you?'
