In the Fifth week and fifth lesson we studied, Digital technologies and all the theory behind it. The things that are associated with Digital Technology/Technologies are manipulation of images, digital images and digital production, we therefore talked about each one of them and then we looked at people who tried to apply them to the outside world. We looked at Peter Savile doing the Joy Division cover and True faith, New Order in 1987, he used a different type of style called typography to make it more visual to the viewers. Then we looked at Bladerunner the film, and looked at how that world was so dominated by technology that you wouldn’t be able to live without it, which is kind of like it today. But we also looked at how they looked into the future and everything was cyber, it was technology, Cyber Culture. Then before moving on we looked at a digital design studio which Ive forgotten the name but its constantly under construction and always getting built a bit like how it is today, the world is under construction and theirs always something going on like new buildings created along with landmarks, new materials being found. Its amazing how the maker of this studio has interpreted the world for others to see, and also people can add to the world and make it there’s.
We also looked at new media and determined that new media is all that associated is internet. Over the last lessons which i have been posting we say that something about modernity and post modernity, we have identified that new media is the shift between that and the ways and means of the change of networks of communication. For example thanks to new media we don’t have to go out now to enjoy our afternoons we can just sit at home and watch a movie or browse the web online, while talking to friends. This is all thanks to New Media.
