The IconoloqV and Language Games of Pinterest. Doctor of Philosophy (Information

As non-institutional digital image collections expand into social media,
independent non-professional image curators are emerging, actively constructing
alternative naming conventions to suit their needs in a social collecting environment.
This project considers how independent user-curators are developing particular sense-
making behaviors as they actively contribute names to large, unstructured social image
collections. In order to capture and explore this evolving language adaptation, Pinterest
names are analyzed using a matrix composed of Panofsky's three strata of subject
matter, Rosch's levels of categorical abstraction, Shatford Layne's image attributes and
Wittgenstein's language game constructions. Analyzing Pinterest image names
illuminates previously unnoticed behaviors by independent user-curators as they create
shared collections. Exploring the various language choices which user-curators select
as they apply this new curating vocabulary helps identify underlying user needs not
apparent in traditionally curated collections restricted to traditional naming conventions.
