Day 8

Life is a zoo in a jungle. Peter De Vries An interesting thing I came across today was this. I rekindled my thoughts about my previous work. https://vimeo.com/25089877 http://stephenbell.org.uk/   Looking back into this I feel reconnected with memories and days that are no longer here.

Week 8 – The next step

Looking back to the start of this project I can see that social media shares an integral part to the basis of today’s current world. The different abilities that it has towards connecting and disconnecting itself, is one that has allowed me to explore within the developed work. Positive feedback from different users, has enabled […]

Week 7 Being Authentic

  To each and every dichotomy the beauty that social media transmits, provide certain users freedom ‘to a certain extent’ and the freedom to explore different loop holes that make this interaction unique and beautiful to engage with. As found within Howard’s Newman adventure to Amsterdam, the simple technology failure, provides us with something that […]

Week 6 It is all real! PROMISE

The reality that social media push forward, is one that has always sought to identify itself as pure and perfect in all ways. In this light people with some brains would know that this is a manipulative system that people fall for very easily. Taking into account Zilla Van Den Born fake journey to Asia, […]

#Somethingtothinkabout

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4mvZB_8qYs   “Disneyland is presented as imaginary in order to make us believe that the rest is real, whereas all of Los Angeles and the America that surrounds it are no longer real, but belong to the hyperreal order and to the order of simulation. It is no longer a question of a false representation […]

Week 5 Frustration

Sometimes you need to vent out the suppression that engulfs within this reality that we are unknowingly living in. Distant and away you need time to think and embrace this reality that identifies me from you. https://www.instagram.com/p/BD1RB1KNfvW/?taken-by=thesocialreality In the past week I felt a huge element of frustration that this whole social media life that […]

Week 4 Are we numbers?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7dLU6fk9QY This reminded me of Andreas Gursky Vernacular photograph, as he explains that we are numbers and our individuality is a digit! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/405535141418446237/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/405535141418446230/ Another approach that I have tackled through out this week was that to work beyond the restriction and border of a singular frame. This allowed for a better reach of people […]

Week 3 followtofollow

Looking within the different possibilities to increase followers through the use of #ff #followtofollow #instafollow #instadaily where an increase of request to follow has followed the daily post feed. Similiar to the ‘motherlode and kaching’ from SIMS, the increase of followers is at reach of hand. This reminded me of this : http://kronstadt21.tumblr.com/post/59989944305/youdidwhatnow-assisi-road-by-emiliano-ponzi Where we should follow not follow […]

Week 2 thesocialreality

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvebnkjwTeU 3 Teching Hsieh – We are bodies that repeat and repeat. This work is about an artist that punched clocked for every hour of every day for an entire year. Taking photographs he documents the mundane process that of revealing the vernacular state of being human. “I’m just basically passing time” This element contributed […]
