Looking at MTV Catfish episodes on Internet relationships that continue over time without the partners ever seeing each other in real life or on cam I realize that a serious taboo for youngsters is images. Not so much photo images maybe, but moving images and especially moving images of themselves.
I guess that Beatka Staszynska and I in our workshops therefore evoke such big emotions – they involve experiencing a lot of moving pictures of the participants, both in Augmented Reality and on video. But they also involve participants acquiring the tools to start consciously self-presenting themselves in moving images.
It’s interesting how our method of constructive confrontation is appreciated, seeing how many young people seen to avoid this confrontation when deciding for themselves.
