#BCM325 Future Cultures #Week 8 #Explanation of My Project
“The cyborg is a kind of disassembled and reassembled, postmodern collective and personal self.” (Haraway,2000).
The appearance of “Cyborg” blurred the line between origin and reproduction. It breaks the concept from “Creations.” Everyone has to admit it is a futuristic and mystic topic. That is the reason why it attracts me to use “Cyborg” as my project.
I believe people may found hard to understand this academic topic with lots of technical terms. At first, I wanted my videos to be informative, to help people clearly understand the concept of “Cyborg”.
However, I changed my mind after I posted the first video to Youtube. When I read the comments, I found out people misunderstood, even afraid of “Cyborg” and the future. At that moment, I wanted my video to become educative and reflective. People would reflect their attitude of facing the future after they watch my video.
Here’s the short video that I’m introducing my beta project
Before, I was thinking about creating three short videos that suitable for the general public. I decide from now on, each video would have its specific target group audiences and utility function. People could learn different things through my video.
