Are memes ART?
I mean, they literally have a museum, as I showed in my previous post. So they literally are, even by definition. “The expression … of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form … appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”
At first I was skeptical about starting this assignment. Yes, is a dream come true, but doing this kind of activities belong to a community you are comfortable with. Unfortunately, It’s really hard to set limits and know which memes you post make an impact. I’m not a memer myself, but a lot of people tell me I should make them. Here’s my first try ever:
Honestly, It’s so good to write an article doing memes. I just feel like everything I say, I could pair it with a good meme. I used imflip in order to make the meme above I recommend this page because it has a lot of templates to choose from.
I remember a part of my life that was reminded to me when I read the article by the verge about danks memes. It happened at my first year of college, I was mostly alone since I did not know anyone and all my friends went to a different college. I use to refuge myself in memes and watch them to forget about all of what was happening in my life. I watched so many memes that I got into a section called dank memes. The taste of memes becomes a different meaning to me. How a previous meme that I saw could be made to illustrate something different. A different emotion, those olds memes powered with intense music and loud colors. I’ll spend my nights watching compilations of them before going to sleep. That’s why I think they are art
