For this week’s activity, we were required to take a minimum of four pictures throughout our day and post them on Instagram with the hashtag #art110of15. The picture on the left is a screenshot of what our class of Art 110 has posted. The picture on the right is what I’ve posted throughout my day. It was interesting to see what people have chosen to document. Although there was a wide variety of pictures, the most common included selfies and pictures of pets, food, and the art museums we visited on Thursday.
This assignment has reminded me of how far social media has come, and the extent of its influence on our daily lives. Our generation participates in social photography on a daily basis, whether we’re aware of it or not. The advancements in technology and our need to share boosted by various social networking outlets has enhanced out abilities of documenting every moment.
