For this weeks blog post we look at the chronic task of sorting, in particular I will shed some light on ‘Liquid Life’ and the fragility of owning a job in this generation.
“Today we are in the middle of a new media revolution – the shift of all
culture to computer-mediated forms of production, distribution, and communication.” (Manovich, 2001).
In a way media can act as a peacemaker to a liquid life in which we live in. Media can make us understand how the world is changing and adapting constantly. It’s what makes the world tick in a way and my GIF displays this notion. It also shows the forever flow of the internet in the world.
I’m sure it’s daunting for most BCM students knowing that they are studying for a degree which could possibly lead to unemployment or a long period of searching and sorting for the perfect job. Personally, I do feel worried about building a portfolio in a “portfolio workplace” with the uncertain nature of finding a job (Deuze, 2006). Yet this BCM206 subject can help manage and gain experience in agerating and curating content for my own portfolio for future employers.
