- Daiya: I think I'm forgetting central pieces of knowledge in order to retain more Baudrillard.
(: hyperrealism in action
I love Baudrillard’s work and concepts. I can’t help but reflect on Tumblr’s hyperreality and the identities people ‘create’ from external media, photoshopped synthetic images, soundbite quotes from other people and the group-thought of reblogging: ultimately creating an artificial ‘self expression’.
(anyways, I’ll get back to posting cute cat memes…. (: )
From “Screened Out” by Jean Baudrillard as part of Verso’s Radical Thinker series, set 8.
