Selfie Queenin Time!

🤳🏾SELFIE! SELFIE! SELFIE! WHAT IS THAT! YOU SAY!!LOOK NO FARTHER I GOT YOU RIGHT HERE!!

A selfie (/sɛlf/)[1] is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a smartphone which may be held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. They are for vanity usually flattering and made to appear casual. “Selfie” typically refers to self-portrait photos taken with the camera held at arm’s length or pointed at a mirror, as opposed to those taken by using a self-timer or remote. Selfie Run Down 

Futhermore, I want to introduce you to a google and culture app that we used during this weeks class. It’s a app that will match your selfie with someone else but in art work form. The app is not always accurate but it’s fun to see what they come up with. It’s matches you with people that have very popular work.  Also, if you do didn’t poses or take your image from a different angle you will get different results. I will show you what a few of mine look like so that you can get a clear idea of what I’m talking about. You can also download it from any app store. The app is called Google Arts&Culture.

The images that match my selfie with art selfies from Arts&Culture,

These last two images is shot from a different angle which gave me different results

Selfies are images that we take of ourselves and they are apart of the present time and of the future. I only see them getting more creative as time pass and as technology grow. Technology has introduce us to a world of new ways to play with ours selfies. We can add filters, animal faces, food faces, add different colors to them, just to name a few. I love selfies, they are very fun to take and to play around with. I have over 256 of them in one folder called SELFIES. In class we talked about how selfies make us feel, why we take selfies, what’s the purpose behind them and why do captions on selfies may portray as someone else. As I can only speak of myself, taking selfies can be a way of life LOL.

I take SELFIES when

  • I’m bored,
  • when I’m not bored
  • When I’m out at an event with friends
  • When I want to capture my face with makeup
  • When I’m having fun
  • When I feel like this is a cute moment to take one
  • When I’m happy, in a playful mode

I just loved them, they are an in the moment type of image. I’m just always ready to take one. Down below you will find many selfies of myself. So lets go on a SELFIE tour with me.

Memes Happened

Memes are awesome visuals to use and a great way to express yourself. It’s more fulfilling then using words and they are a great way to get your point across rather thing using a plain image then adding a caption to it.What makes meme so popular is the fact that people across the world can relate to them. We relate to the meme because we’ve came across that very image that came from our favorite and popular tv shows, movie or from our culture. We understand what that meme is saying without it saying the very exact thing it once originally said. We can simply relate to meme and it gives you a greater laugh then a boring post which is the reason why their so popular.

  • I defiantly think meme are a form of digital art because you use technology to create them. You can take a look at a few meme that I love which are digitally made.

 

  • Netnarr was a pain in my neck but I’m growing to love it so when I hear people complain about it, I want to give them this type of reaction. You should use Netnarr more often

Boss Life!>>>Who you gone FIRE~YAnetnarr

Nosedive was a very intresting episode to watch. It makes you look at social media and life in a new way. It shows you how, catch up in the world we can be with the likes and comments that we receive from others. It shows you how technology and social media plays into people daily life. I also think social media and technology is taking up a huge part of people time within a day.  People don’t know who their are beyond social media. I think they only have the self esteem that they do because of the likes and love that they receive from these sites; I.e Instagram , Facebook, twitter and snapchat just to name a few. This sites can be validating to some, promotion worthy for some, branding for others. I guess it depends on how you use it but that’s my general opinion what nosedive showed me and what reality is in this present time. 4.8 Please~~~~Nosedive Meme

My Perception

Class was very interesting this week, digital art was the main focus so I decided to come home and find some digital art images and get a clear understanding what digital art really is. 

Digital art~ is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process.

In a world where they expect women to drown we fix our crowns and rising above the unexpected.

Down below you will find pictures of my own digital art that I created or ones that I found online.

This picture was inspired by our twitter safari that we had to do in class as an netnarr activity. We had to take a picture of something from an unusual angle. This is my daughter’s car from an unusual angle.  #digitalart affordable for my child but not unaffordable for me. Yea, life is great!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Twitter safari where we had to take a picture of tracks of another person’s. My story would be, not to follow my tracks but to create your own in hopes that you can help someone else create theirs. #digitalart Tracks of another person

Twitter safari of a single color shot. This picture communicates freedom to me, it reminds me of the ocean. It makes me feel alive and brings a sense of happiness to my being. #aqua

Being a digital alchemist is helping me connect with the digital world in a way that I’ve never experience before. I am learning about what “digital” means in all aspect, from looking at digital images, creating digital media and looking at others digital work. I had to define what digital was even though I knew what it was, just to have a better understanding of what it means to be digital. I’m being introduce to new digital apps and digital sites that is contributing to me being a digital alchemist. As the weeks go by I’m am getting a little more better as what is means to be a digital alchemist.  Anybody wants to welcome me to RELIEF  “LOLrelief

Everybody’s Watching

Brett and Dr. Zumara was very interesting as we talked to him on google hangout. We discuss the do not track videos that we’ve watch so far. I’ve learned that Brett makes skateboard films which was his very first thing to produce and he loves the internet. I remember someone mentioning privacy is a RARE thing and I must agree that it really is. It’s hard to ignore your favorite item you just got finish looking at and didn’t by, without being tempted by an ad from your social media pages encouraging you just to get it. For example, I can be shopping online at a store, then when I finish with that site and go on one of my social media pages, I will see them advertising the same exact item I just got finish looking at.  The link below may give you father clarification as to why these things happen >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I really need clarity with everything because I feel like it’s just a bunch of things that are being thrown my way with little to no understand on how to do it.  So my face is like ~~~~~~Confused..

Network Narrative

When I first got to this class I was completely nervous. My hair was in the air, I was bitting my nails “per usual” and my nervous were everywhere. When I first receive the class syllabus via email, I’m like what in the world is going on in this class “LOL”(laughing out loud). What almost gave me a nervous break down was that I found out that you were a virtual teacher and there was no fair warning before hand. Then I started to notice all the sites and blogs that we had to create and was in complete shock because most of them were new to me expect twitter, so I felt very confused and a little overwhelm. I just knew I was going to drop this class after my first class, but come to find out it wasn’t so bad after all and I was eager to stay. However, once I got to class and was able to connect with the professor I began to feel a little more comfortable.

Once  you clarify what was your expectations of your students I began to feel at ease like I can accomplish everything that you were asking of me so far “LOL”. You reassure me that everything wasn’t what I was making it out to be in my head and that things were going to be okay. I like the fact that you took my nervousness about this course serious, it made me feel even more comfortable. It made me want to stay and learn about digital alchemy and network because I have no clue what it’s about. What really excites me is that we will be working with students from across the country and I get to hangout with grad students because I can really learn from them and ask them questions about my future options. I also like that you will be opening my brain to something that I’ve never done before like netnarr and hypothesis.is. Another thing that excited me are the twitter post, they are cute and intriguing to me. What worries me is meeting my contract of an A because it looks like a lot but again I could be over thinking it like before.

As of right now I can’t think of no questions I would like to ask you but would you be present for each class “LOL”. Moreover, I have a lot of experiences with connecting with people. Whether it be in-person, FaceTime or via the internet( Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter) . I love connecting with others and meeting new people. I myself is a people’s person so engaging with people is my forfeit unless I feel a weird enegry coming from them. So I hope that this class will be enjoyable and  that I can at least take one new thing that I learned from this course and carry it with me.
