dump.fm is an image-based chat room for real-time communication. Founded in November 2009 by Ryder Ripps in collaboration with Scott Ostler (of MIT Exhibit) and Tim Baker (of Delicious), dump.fm serves as a platform for artists who use its technology to foster community and creativity. IRL brings together dump.fm users from all over the world (many of whom will be meeting “In Real Life” for the first time) to offer an alternative to the traditional 1:1 experience by translating the liveness of dump.fm into a visual confectionery through collaborative participation in the physical realm. Look for caves animated by psychedelic GIFs, web-based performances with interactive webcams, architectural renderings of virtual property, and audio-visual recompositions that return images to the social networks and digital systems from which they emerge.
