This week was about posting Instragram photos about our day on Thursday 2/5/15. Here are the pix I posted that day:
This was a project to be like a giant selfie of the class and when you go to the hashtag #art110s15, you will find all of my classmates on there and the four pictures they posted on that day as well as mine. By looking at the hashtag page, I noticed that another person posted a picture of pho and food, I saw a lot of pictures of paintings that we were able to check out at the galleries on campus that day, a lot of selfies or selfies with friends, pets, drinks, and some activities such as rock climbing or playing pool. I do have to say I’m jealous of @lahyawood about going to Roscoe’s chick and waffles. These are the connections I saw with my classmates but other than the art posted, I felt like I was the only one who posted an art piece that I did myself. I saw one other pictured where someone posted a pic of a popsicle in front of their steering wheel whereas I just posted a picture of my steering wheel. I wasn’t really surprised to see that everyone is not doing something completely different than the others because I have been on Instragram for a few years and everyone’s pictures is about activities and their lives and I feel like everyone goes through the same thing one time or another and posts about it one time or another. This is why I feel like it creates an Instragram community as everyone is connected and can share what they did and others can relate to what they posted.
