I finished my Flow Information Project, which happens to be my last project of the semester, at midnight. I traced the content flow of Kanye’s recent media event that subjected him to be scrutinized by that powers that be (media).
I honestly feel free. I feel like school is a mental prison because it cripples my creativity. I value organization and structure but I don’t like the thought of doing busy work without application or creating. I do appreciate the draft work in the same token.
After falling into Kanye’s performance art on the media stage, I thought it was a good idea to share a different perspective to look at how you view your media. A scientific way that will help you identify the source’s intentions. Anyone that consumes media, should be media literate. If not, then you should learn because it’s a cultural commodity that dominates contemporary life.
I have to say that I agree with many of Kanye’s point. When you look at history from a universal viewpoint it makes sense. We do have to take into account that this is a person that has allegedly been disconnected from the world. T.I. mentioned in his Breakfast Club interview that “Kanye just getting a phone”.
The process by which a member of the audience is able to read a media text in a way other than the preferred reading. Also used to describe the ability of media literacy students to deconstruct texts outside the classroom.
All Kanye simply saying is:
- (of a country or region) having self-government, at least to a significant degree.“the federation included sixteen autonomous republics”
- acting independently or having the freedom to do so.“an autonomous committee of the school board”
- (in Kantian moral philosophy) acting in accordance with one’s moral duty rather than one’s desires.
self-governing, self-ruling, self determining, independent, sovereign, free,
unmonitored, “an autonomous republic”
