How instagram is curated and how people choose images to represent their personal brand
- Don’t want to post more than 2 or 3 times a day
- You have to show that you have more to do in your day than just post on instagram;
that what you’re posting has a foundation of reality underneath it
- Not as exciting
- You also don’t want to show off; if someone sees too much of you it becomes more
about forcing someone to look at you rather than having that person “follow” you
Andy Warhol made copies of his artwork; does it make it oversaturated or display the value of the
original piece?
Eric Kessel filled a room with all the photos that were uploaded onto Flipper in just one day
- The value of the individuality of the piece is lost when it’s piled with everything else it’s posted
alongside
The printing press disseminated information a lot better in the form of books than before, when
everything has hand-written
- Potentially the most important invention of all time
Mimesis: act of resembling what is seen
- Similar to mirror
- The idea was that you could have a representation as an exact mirror; the image actually
became the ideal of the thing itself
- “This is a reflection (or as close to) as the thing that is being copied”
Leng Jun portraits are founded on mimesis; they’re almost exact
- Is there symbolism in this, or is it a simple copy of reality?
Peter Claesz’
Still Life with Turkey (
1627)
- How does this painting represent a dutch scene of daily life in the 17c?
- Scene of a meal that’s just been left; everything looks very real
- Still life was a common form in the Dutch 17c (Amsterdam)
- Rise in the middle class economically, so they’d have images like this in their home and have
more luxurious meals; the world was becoming more accessible (some of the food and utensils
like the China and salt reflect that)
- Allegorical perspective on mortality
- The apples are starting to get rotten, other food is getting bad; message is that even
though this looks great time is short to indulge in the meal (life)
Are photographs symbols or a reflection of the real world
Look at slides for info on positivism
- Kind of the birth of the scientific method; ridding the world of biases and influences in
perceptions of it, how does the world work?
Sparks on the body of a prostitute was an example of this; uncovering the invisible world
- They could see things super close up and document the proof of how things worked
