Episode 3

FOUCAULT / DELEUZE 

Is it normal? And who is in charge?

Deleuze opens up the big discussion of surveillance society with the Panopticon building, and ends up conceptualizing every actor in social media (and way beyond) as machines. We live in an ever-expanding rhizome, sustained by intricate networks of power.

ROLAND BARTHES

The meanings we make

What does it all mean, anyway? Let's take a moment to watch social media like an alien fallen to Earth, and analyze the cultural meanings we get from these experiences. Why am I posting breakfast pictures? Why am I dancing Gangnam Style? Behind all behavioral science, lies a story. Let's get into it.
