The mirror is in every room in the ballet world, because ballet dancers are constantly looking at themselves, studying themselves, and maybe even judging themselves. All the time. So it was very clear to me that the mirror was a major character in this film. And the film is also about doubles. Your reflection is your double, isn’t it? So it just became a really important part of the film. And very early on we started to think of all the different types of tricks we could do with mirrors. - Darren Aronofsky
Someone should write a story based on these photos, is all I’m saying.
THREESOME THREESOME THREEEEEESOOOOOOOMMMMMEEEEE
So for my class project, I decided to compare how people identify online and how they identify themselves. What first started out as a study into race, quickly turned into something way bigger. The first photo is a word cloud of how a certain set of people identified racially. The second, are words used to describe the same set of people by 5 of my friends and colleagues. Second ones a little bigger right? Yeah, a lot bigger!
We think that places like Facebook and Twitter advertise ways to ‘share yourself’ and ‘express who you really are’, but that’s not what really happen. What happen is people get labeled with stereotypes, identities and behaviors by other online users with no way to combat it. Yes, social media has allowed us to explore and show new and different sides of ourselves, but it has also caused stereotypes and problematic representations to be continued.
So I challenge you, the next time you see a profile picture or a face on a page, think about the labels and characteristics you’ve associated with them in just one glance. Think about what society has taught you about people who look like them, and why we can so easily label and stereotype people with just once glance.
