Decay Part III: Body Conscious
Ann Hirsch (US 2014, 10:37)
A film that deals with how various media technologies can potentially influence us to start thinking of ways to shape our online or digital presence in order to stand out in a crowd. The film raises important questions related to feminism, sexuality and body objectification. Since the film deals with how digital platforms enable and almost encourage us to alter parts of our identity to supposedly hide or improve our flaws, it could be an addition to the debate about the ‘body-technology relationship’, but from the perspective of how identities are altered.
