IMPACT 25 PROJECT:
> TITLE: "This is me, NOW" [Is it?]
> Coursework for New Media, New Forms; a foundation class at Columbia University Teachers College (Summer 2017, Instructor: Richard Jochum)
Take a "selfie" with your smartphone camera. Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply text it to me. You will be listed below by your first name (only) under the heading "COLLABORATORS."
NOTES: The prompt the command outlined in INSTRUCTIONS above. The "selfie" is the project collaborator's response. The project will question the immediacy of ubiquitous networked technology for image [re-]production, relative to time-as-present-state for the Self, as a function of process for data transfer and presentation.
ASSUMPTION: The obvious in media is not obvious, or the obvious solution is not real.
CONCLUSION: The "Selfie" is a specific type of Mediated Network Performance.
