The Fragmented Me (Exploring Selfies in an UnSelfie World)

We’re exploring the art and act of Selfies in Networked Narratives, as Mia Zamora and Hannah Kelley are researching the impact of selfies and plan to curate a public art exhibit under the banner of #SelfieUnselfie in Norway. Both are on Fulbright Scholarships right now and focused on digital literacies (I think). Take a look/listen to their project and their invitation: True story: an hour after watching that video by Mia and Hannah and thinking about the idea of the […]

Slice of Life: A Meme Walks Into the Classroom

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We write on Tuesdays about the small moments in the larger perspective … or is that the larger perspective in the smaller moments? You write, too.) Most mornings, we have a Circle of Power and Respect in our sixth grade classroom. It’s a version of Morning Meeting, aimed more for older students. At this point in the year, I have my students lead all aspects of our morning. One […]

Eponymous Topic and the Internet

So, as you can see, this NetNarr blog is called The Wunderkammer.  You can also see that some of my work for the NetNarr class (like my DDAs and one of my entries into the Digital Art Referencium) has involved the same term and concept. <blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/netnarr?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@netnarr</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/dda150?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#dda150</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/netnarr?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#netnarr</a&gt; A raccoon skull (and other goodies) from my wunderkammer. <a href=”https://t.co/9V7MLi9ktw”>pic.twitter.com/9V7MLi9ktw</a></p>&mdash; Katherine Marzinsky (@KMarzinsky) <a href=”https://twitter.com/KMarzinsky/status/963217158917455878?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>February 13, 2018</a></blockquote> https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js The wunderkammer (wonder room), or cabinet […]

If You Like it, Then You Should Make a Meme of It!

I LOVE Beyonce! And I am even more excited that I get to use Beyonce in this blog post! This is actually one of my favorite memes. Now, I made this one but there is a picture of a meme in my class that says, "If you want a grade then you shoulda put your name on it." I actually have a bulletin board full of different meme sayings. I don't know why I didn't think of it before now. Okay, I […]

Memes and Selfies

I love that this class recognizes the importance of something as seemingly-silly as memes in the overall narrative that is digital culture in the 21st century. Memes are very important because, as I mentioned in class, they're a form of communication that we tend to take for granted. For example, I mentioned The Meme Bible, a gift I bought for my friends (10/10 recc, by the way, buy it immediately #notspon). When I looked through the activity book, I realized that […]

who needs JOBS when u have SELFIES and MEMES, said every millennial ever

i'd be lying if i said i wasn't excited for this week's class. last class proved to be engaging, both in conversation and creation, as we explored memes. tomorrow, we get to take on the selfie culture. the real reason i'm looking forward to the discussion is because this is the culture my peers have created with the technology we've been given - i want to hear what people have to say about these forms of expression in a more […]

Making a mean meme

Digital art is a topic of conversation for the last couple of weeks in class. I have learned that digital art has a vast meaning and that everyones idea on digital art is different. This week though, we have done a lot of stuff with memes. Is it digital art? Of course it is! It’s a way for people to be creative and express there own ideas in a picture. Memes are typically know for laughs but it can be […]

Our Meme Activities on Netnarr

What an interesting time it was for the Netnarr class last time we met. We spoke and learned how to make our own memes with a meme generator website. But before we got into that,  Professor Levine asked the students to watch an episode of Black Mirror titled Nosedive which is a Netflix series. Each episode is completely different with different cast and events. I was not able to watch it before Tuesday Class but thankfully almost everyone in the […]

Memed Out~

Tbh, I kind of never want to hear the word “meme” again. Anyway…. MEMES Credit @stryii~ In class this week, we explored the fascinating world of meme-making and meme-meaning-making(?)~ In order to accomplish that, we had to descend into the depths of those dank memes I hate myself. We got our hands dirty making our own memes. The Make Bank gave our creative selves some direction, though. More, it provided some purpose to why we were exploring memes as well as some ideas about […]

#NetNarr Flash Echo: Watching the Unfolding of Digital Art

The folks in Networked Narratives have held two “flash” events on Twitter, examining a piece of Digital Art and tweeting to a series of questions. Both of the Flash events happened when I was either working or sleeping (which is fine, since part of the NetNarr community is overseas). I decided to keep exploring, anyway. So, this is a bit late. Consider it an echo. The first piece of Digital Art examined is called Sky Magic Live at Mt. Fuji: […]

Memes Happened

Memes are awesome visuals to use and a great way to express yourself. It’s more fulfilling then using words and they are a great way to get your point across rather thing using a plain image then adding a caption to it.What makes meme so popular is the fact that people across the world can relate to them. We relate to the meme because we’ve came across that very image that came from our favorite and popular tv shows, movie […]
