First-5:What are the first five websites you visit every day?
Published 11th July 2012

First Five asks artists, academics and theorists the first five websites that they visit each day. Do the websites we read shape, describe and identify who we are? How do we choose to visit these sites?

First Five is not a musical playlist, but a website playlist. It asks various thinkers, creative types, culturally important people, academics, and even Open CuRate It’s Boo Chapple to list their top browsing habits. It’s an interesting reflection of our changing culture, and a great place to find fantastic websites.

Alfredo Cramerotti is a writer, curator, editor and artist working across a variety of media such as TV, radio, publishing, internet, media festivals, photography, writing and exhibition curating. He directs Mostyn, Wales’ largest and leading contemporary art centre, co-directs AGM Culture, roaming curatorial agency and CPS Chamber of Public Secrets, media & art production unit (co-curator of Manifesta 8, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Region of Murcia, Spain, 2010). He is Research Scholar at the European Centre for Photography Research, University of Wales, Newport, Visiting Lecturer in various European Universities among others NTU Nottingham Trent University, University of Westminster, HEAD Geneva and DAI Dutch Arts Institute, and Editor of the Critical Photography book series by Intellect Books.
