to.be, a new social platform, however, allows the reblogger to remix their dashboard. As an “online studio space [to] collage the internet,” the to.be user can upload images, videos, and sound from on their desktop, across the web, or directly from their tumblr dashboard onto a “field,” or a blank canvas/background/studio space. With simple editing tools that emulate analog collage processes such as: stencil, duplicate, resize, move, layer, pen, paintbrush, paint-bucket, and erase, the user can create original multimedia collages without software such as Photoshop. As a social platform, collages are published to the to.be stream, where they become “pullable” for other users to reinterpret. The best feature of to.be is the “printable” option which materializes your digital piece as a unique object, either wearable as a t-shirt or sweatshirt or hangable as an art print.
