The body in the Digital age/ Beautification/ The era of selfies


In our consumer culture we are increasingly worried about our appearance. More and more we are building an identity on social media that is not real and trying to capture perfect moments. It affects not only the way people perceive us, but also our self perception. Our physical identity changes with the impact of the digital self. Aiming to be perfect. The era of selfies; the figure in a selfie is usually an idealised self that has been carefully created to be seen by others. Celebrity culture can be a powerful influence on attitudes to appearance; the remaking of the body, cosmetic surgery. We identify ourselves with two-dimensional images as our most permanent form of ‘value’. Our identities are becoming more and more like ‘human’ performances.
