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 is profound and deeply impact to the mundane and vernacular videos that access the linearity of abiding with the rules.

(This link has been removed from the channel ;/) It was about a grand father which recorded his journey to Amsterdam with a new go pro in the wrong direction. What you could see in the video was the random reactions and laughs he had with his wife.

In thus similar way the back Camera process has allowed me to interact within shapes and different manipulative processes upon which the linearity of the previous weeks could be further distorted and deviated from the actual truth, providing a clearer outlook towards the social reality of the whole process. In this Light different angles and light processes has been formed and worked upon.

 

BEME

Another interesting APP that has been launched for Android last week is that of created by Casey Neistat a New York Film Maker. An app that removes the element of filter and edits and seeks to portray the raw moments that we live in. The only thing that you can review is the reactions that people send back, which is only seen once. To this the resolving idea of moment bears within an important part in portraying the true and authentic experience.

Collaboration for Ai WeiWei is possible within the different spaces found within the social interaction. The act of sharing an idea is one of utmost importance.

 

Trying to expose the reality that I find compelling within the social media, I looked within my authentic perspective and reaction to this project. At times I failed in providing a clear outlook to the dichotomy and pattern and see everyday. Nonetheless, I kept on trying.

Week 4 Are we numbers?

This reminded me of Andreas Gursky Vernacular photograph, as he explains that we are numbers and our individuality is a digit!

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 and resolved into other ideas to what the intent of this social message is all about. Through the repetition I was able to bring out the fade and over exposed element that is within repost and retweets.
