Summary of Digital Artefact

Throughout the process of creating this digital artefact my project was heavily influenced by multiple sources of information. The main trajectory of my project was informed by Drew and Reichart statement, that “Currently there are 2,625kg worth of cast- off clothing burnt every second, that’s 82.78Mt of clothing being burnt per year” (D. Drew, E. Reichart, 2019). Furthermore, the “fashion production industry makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams” (McFall-Johnson, M, 2019). All these numbers and statistics were so devastating that I wanted to create a project educating people on the industry, its impacts, and the outcomes a small change to their shopping habits could make.

The main two main topics from the course I related my project was to, Future Studies and Multiple Futures. Both topics are relevant to…

#They’restillbasic

Apart of the BCM325 subject we are required to live screen a movie per week and engage in the online conversation that is happening with our peers via Twitter. It is in this conversation we can reflect on themes, construct comparative analysis’ and have an open discussion about the live screening. This is part 2 of my reflection, from the previous few weeks of the semester.

Week Six – Blade Runner 245

In the sixth week of tweeting I found the text a lot easier to analyse, as it was extremely similar to one of the previous texts. I also tried to incorporate different ideas I had about the future and how well the directors/ creators of the film had accurately depicted, a possible future for our world today. Overall my engagement for that week was better than some of my previous weeks, as I was able to obtain…

Tik Tok’s, Future Plans and Virtual Reality

Daily Dash of Danielle

Throughout the duration of BCM325 we are required to comment on 3 of our peer’s Beta projects. This allows us to interact and give relevant feedback to our classmates, whilst also broadening the ways in which we think about the future. Ultimately assisting us in coming up with new and innovative approaches to look at our own projects.

Comment 1 –Jett’s ‘The Future of Streaming Services’

Jett’s project showcases music and up and coming artists through the online platform ‘Tik Tok’, as he investigates the future of music on various streaming services. In my comment I mentioned to Jett that he needs to include more subject based materials, as well as further academic sources. As Jett had spoken about the use of Cybernetics and Human Knowing by Gregory Bateson, and Cyber culture as his overarching theme, I delved deeper into his project looking through his Tik Tok’s. I found…

BCM325 Beta Video

The process of completing my video essay has been relatively smooth, I predominately been researching and re-reading old research, as this project is a continuation from my previous BCM212 my curiosity study. I’ve had no issue when it comes to addressing the 30-50yr future element of my project, as most sources I’ve found have had a ‘what could possibly happen‘ section embedded in their article.

The only major hurdle I’m currently facing is finding enough academic material to include in my video essays. Whilst I’ve found plenty of non-academic research relevant to my topics, I want to include as many content specific academic sources as possible, to add to the overall reliability of my video essays. I plan to remedy this situation by trying to find as many relevant journal articles as possible via database, the UOW library site and Google Scholar.

Week One – Metropolis

I found tweeting in week one to be one of the most challenging by far. It took me a while to get used to being able to watch the movie, analyse it and keep up with the constant conversation that was happening via Twitter. My tweets that week consisted of a range of different comparisons to other films, such as “Snowpiercer” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1”. I found that both of these comparisons sparked a really interesting discussion thread, where my peers were wanting to…

Comment 1“How will Retail Therapy Change? #BCM325 PITCH <33” By Stephanie Jory.

Stephanie’s project is a 3-part weblog series that focus’ on the longevity of the retail industry, in a world where ecommerce is on the rise. I found this project interesting because it raises a lot of questions about the retail industry and its validity in the 21st century.

My BCM325 Pitch

This Digital Artefact will be an indirect continuation of a previous project I completed in BCM212 for my #MYCURIOSITY study. This project will look at similar components to my previous study e.g., what is the fast fashion industry and what are the relevant environmental impacts? However, in order to stay relevant to the BCM325 subject, I will be predominately focusing on how these impacts are going to affect the future.

I will create a series of 3 short video essays that will be uploaded to YouTube, this ensures I’m following the F.I.S.T methodology. Everything I will be creating will be fast and inexpensive, as I’m using a platform that allows me to upload freely and with relative ease. Furthermore, the main concept I’ve planned for each video is to answer one question per video, which ensures I am following all the key principals of F.I.S.T (Fast, Inexpensive…
