Meme could be art

                                 
 
From what i have found about memes, it is notably very mixed on whether memes should be considered art. Although many articles provide good points on why memes could be art, i can only agree to an extent. i also feel that the articles i did find are dedicated more to an audience that doesn’t know what memes are.
 
 
 
Memes are definitely not leaving for a long time. no matter how many people would want to even get rid of memes, they are staying. i wouldn’t say they are directly impacting art in any way . i understand that there’s disputes for including memes in art galleries but it isn’t directly impacting any definition of art or how art in general is perceived. what i do think is that memes are an amazing form of communication. this is because sometimes your too lazy to type a whole sentence to explain your thoughts when instead you can send a funny meme. this can be seen as insensitive but i feel that it can only be done if both people have similar senses of humor and its appropriate to the time. i feel like that’s the extent of memes. some memes could definitely have deeper meaning behind them but i feel that most memes are made for laughs. but a lot of memes have history behind them based on the images they use and the eras they were created.
 
                                   
 
Memes can definitely be used in story telling. I believe most memes can be put next to each other and make a coherent storyline. Even if the images i am about to show aren’t your cut and paste memes with the top and bottom text. these memes portray a storyline of love and betrayal. with text or not, it becomes apparent on what is being told. ( i recommend reading it left to right)

Memes are imbedded in my life almost indefinitely. this is because alot of my speech or lingo comes from memes. so does alot of my humor. With memes, finding an image that express the emotion i want to convey and being able to put flavor text of what i believe people could relate to is a good way to incorporate storytelling with memes in my life.

A GYPHY experience

A GYPHY EXPERIENCE

I Definitely had trouble getting into this class. As a first year, i didn’t know what classes i want. In some ways i still don’t know. As i messed around with my schedule to see the best ways to optimize my time to learn a variety of things, i happened to stubble into this class. I immediately contacted the professor. i was very interested with the course. the website for the course intrigued me even more. Enrolling into the course was a nightmare because of a lot of technical issues but I’m glad all the paper work went through.

On my first day, i was so lost. i didn’t know where anything was and was afraid to ask anyone where the room for the course was. so i roamed around everywhere till i found where i had to be.

The creative aspect of the course excited me. in some ways its easy, yet challenging. some days I’m filled with ideas on what to post and some days my head is empty. but i feel like it lets us express ourselves however we want.

 

Ct101, to me, seems less stressing then a lot of my other classes. although there isn’t an exact deadline for the assignments, i know i should try and do them as early as possible to not procrastinate. but the freedom is nice to have.

 

I feel that through this course i can definitely be able to learn to express my thoughts more. it could help me with any future ideas for promoting certain ideas. i also see this as a nice experience to make stuff i enjoy.

 

As someone who struggles with technology, learning more skills that use internet tools is a big plus. specially because I’m learning to incorporate a lot of media in my writings. But otherwise, id probably freak out trying to learn this on my own.

Long story short- I’m glad i enrolled

what has made me happy on the internet

I dabble in the internet as much as the next person, but i don’t interact with many people on there. i did however find something that both made me happy and was very interesting to me. I don’t usually look up stuff on the internet, but instead find a lot of stuff i like off of Youtube where i find reviews for a lot of things that i already like or may be interested to search for in the future.

 

One of the most interesting websites i have learned about from Youtube has to be the Library of Babel. This is also know as a a novel written by Jorge Luis Borges. The novel explains how the universe is like an almost infinite library, made of hexagonal rooms, galleries’ and staircases. it contains almost an infinite amount of books with every possible combination of letters, commas, periods, and spaces enveloped in books of 410 pages each. it is supposed that the library has been around since ab aeternoIt was created in order for scholars to study and learn as they please, with books that are undecipherable, millions of identical copies of books, and dead ends. It is said to contain everything that has ever been written and everything that could be written. The website succeeds and replicating that story. Even going as far as including every image possible from a color pallet of 4096 colors on a grid of 416×640. it is supposedly able to make every image possible that has ever been taken and can be taken with those colors. They even called it the Babel Image Archive. This is such an interesting concept and could not stop smiling over the fact of how cool it is and how fascinating the story is. Might just be my weird mind but i find it very cool.
