Week 6, Task 2: Build contextual knowledge on your topic


Selfies – a visual analysis: Elizabeth Urbanski at … – YouTube

This video talks about selfies and how they have developed over time and developed us as people. This video makes it clearer for me to understand how when we take selfies we are both the creator and the subject, so therefore, we choreograph how to represent ourselves and this can come from a number of things such as body language, proximity to the camera, eye contact, adornments, facial expressions and accoutrements.

“Selfies are Poignant evidence of our primal and constant need to be seen, recognized, remembered and validated”

Urbanski, Elizabeth. “Selfies – A Visual Analysis”. TedX. 2015. Web. 27th April 2016.
