Transcript: TEXAS Map of Battles Grass Fight A soldier spotted Mexican troops near San Antonio with a large number of loaded mules. A rumor spread that the mules carried silver to pay the troops in San Antonio General Cos saw the fighting and sent some soldiers to help Then they arrived. After the battle the Mexicans left the mules and went back. Once they rounded up the horses there was no money and the mules only carried bundles of freshly cut grass. Then they left the town to gather food for their army's starving horses. Then they named this the "Grass Fight" because of their foolishness. Grass Fight Battle of Gonzalez Battle of Gonzalez This marked the start of the Texas Revolution Goliad Presidio La Bahia at Goliad was key to controlling south Texas. It guarded the road that ran between San Antonio and the port of Copano on Arkansas Bay, just north of Corpus Christi. Once Cos heard of Castaneda's defeat at Gonzales which made him disturbed. He had a plan to leave Goliad quick. He could not gather enough weapons and mules in such short time.While they marched to Goliad they met another Texas group. Then they headed toward Presdio La Bahia with 120 Texans including some tejanos their attack surprised the Mexican soldiers in the presdio. Samuel McCulloch became the first Texan casualty of the Revolution The capture of Goliad Since Houston's army was untrained he knew he couldn't fight in Santa Anna's army so he ordered a tactical retreat, which is an organized pullback of troops from an enemy in order to gain an advantage, he soon then started his retreat and burned the empty town so that there would be no way for Santa Anna do use, his retreat took nearly all of the Texas soldiers from the region south of the Brazos River Houston's retreat Houston's retreat Santa Anna's troops had burned a path of destruction through the countryside. Houston then found two cannons on his way to find a safe place for training. Then Santa Anna arrived assuming Houston was done fighting. Then it appeared to Santa Anna that the Texas Revolution had ended and he had made the biggest mistake of the entire war he had learned that the government of the Republic had set up a temporary capital in Harrisburg so then he decided to take one thousand of his best troops to capture the Texas government. Battle of San Jacinto Battle of San Jacinto This was an event in the Texas Revolution as Mexicans attempted to destroy it. Travis then seeks some reinforcements, him and his men could have fled when the siege began, but then he made it clear that he would defend the fort at all costs, he then sent one of the men to Gonzales with a letter which is now one of the most signified documents in Texas history , which now is around the world standing as a heartfelt expression of duty and sacrifice. Battle of the Alamo Battle of the Alamo

Transcript: States: 1. Starts with Lewis' first image, then plays the middle clips of war 2. The audio of Daniel Inoyue plays (1:00-2:10) 3. Finishes off with Lewis' third image Kraig's Remix Project Ultimately, the product stays mostly the same, with a few variations. and minute changes. By transitioning between the old iPhone ad and the new one, we blur the changes of what is actually being produced. This kind of consumerism also sheds light on how our society always wants more. States: 1. Starts out with the iPhone 6s commercial 2. Static comes in, starts switching between the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 videos 3. The first two of Xavier's images flashes between this, ending on his final image, "Repeat." In Buddhism, there is a philosophical concept of no-self, or anatta. The basic idea behind it is that our true souls, or identities, is unknowable or doesn't truly exist -- there is only what we think of ourselves, and what others think of us. With this interactive project, I aim to touch upon various aspects of consumerism, advertising, and capitalistic culture in general to see how they perpetrate not only our culture, but how we form our personal identities and the identities around us. Each of the five modules have a slightly different topic, feeling, and general aesthetic, but I attempted to make them all generally coherent. In regards to the Struken and Cartwright quote, advertising has influenced our culture in innumerable ways. Of course there are ritualistic activities we participate in, such as buying diamond engagement rings or Black Friday shopping, but it can also confirm or deny societal expectations, norms, and social cues. I tried to make a number of different points about advertising, society, and culture with my remix video. However, a large part of the inspiration of the format of the video (especially the initial rough cut) came from Don Hertzfeldt's short film, The Meaning of Life, which has almost nothing to do with advertizing, and more about human nature in general. However, as an individual, Hertzfeldt has spoken very openly against advertizing. A few of these different lines come up in a sequence in the short film: "We know what's good for you" and "Give me your money!" The second additional video, Please Use This Song, by Jon LaJoie, was also a major influence in for my remix video, though more in intent rather than format. It uses one overarching song, but through countless different types of advertizements, and points out serious problems with our obsession with material objects and identity. Cory's Images Xavier's Images Quote: "The capacity of the mass media to reach so many viewers both nationally and globally has historically given the media industry a significant amount of power. (Cartwright, 236) Daniel Inouye, the second-longest running senator of all time, was actually a family friend of mine -- he and my grandfather fought together in the same platoon. In that sense, this module is actually quite personal, and shows a contrast between how war was once portrayed in recruiting and advertising, and its harsh reality. States: 1. Starts with the video, goes about half way through 2. Video Static, Intermission 3. Interrupted by the advertisement, banners start flooding I am primarily using two of Lewis' images: the first and third ones. Although this wasn't his explicit intention to solely concentrate on war, I felt only focusing on this topic gives weight to its argument. Although popular opinion of the armed forces can't compare to decades past, the army notoriously and aggressively advertised for themselves (and used heavy propaganda against the enemy). The first video clip I used was a recruiting video from the 1950's, and gives a cheerful outlook on war. Then it transitions to actual clips of war, which is of course, very jarring. The audio from Daniel Inouye's recount of his own war story, and how he was shot and lost his arm, is played as a voice over. States: 1. Plays and transitions through each of the image sequentially 2. Plays the first video (0:40-2), with the third video cutting in/out 3. Plays the second video (0:00-1:20), with the third video cutting in/out Alison's Remix Video As this was my project, I think it is important to view the remix, along with its two major inspirations, together. This way, it gives the viewer more context, and allows for deeper insight for what I was trying to convey. The other aspect of this piece, relating to the book and the quote, is that social media has also provided an area for counter-culture sub groups to form, which is in many ways is very positive. Quote: [In reference to originality] " 'Authenticity' thus can be easily reproduced, packaged, and sold as a quality attributed to particular looks or designs, but not to a single object or person." (Cartwright, 197) "Consumerism is deeply integrated into the daily life and the visual culture of the societies in which we live, often in ways that we do not even recognize."
Transcript: Cory Malkin IML 201 SOURCES As Vanessa's triptych assignment duly notes, from young age, children are presented images in popular films that portray princes, princesses, heroes, etc. that many will aspire to be. These characters, and, "the vast array of media images... produce homogenous images for us of the perfect look, the perfect body, and the perfect pose" (98). While these images may seem harmless to many, "images can both exert power and act as instruments of power" (93). They most effectively communicate the dominant ideology of a particular culture and remain unquestioned for quite some time. Elyse Wang's Triptych Overview Akshay Ravi's Triptych The concept of Docile Bodies permeates our everyday society and many individuals live their lives unaware of its influence. While there are certain benefits from this ideology - cooperation and technological/scientific progression - this concept also has the ability to allow those in power to influence and manipulate culture at large for their own gain. Often times, these dominant ideology creators also have the power over life and death of those they influence. Only through the power and awareness of the individual in society can we keep this system of power in check. States: 1. The Apple ad begins playing to introduce the rise of consumerism and its role in docile bodies--> 2. The ad fades into the image to show the modern price of consumerism 3. Pan right across the image and finish at the text Children do not only see these ideas portrayed in films, they also appear in objects – such as toys – that are also mass consumed. These objects are essentially images that, "are elements of contemporary culture through which assumptions about beauty, desire, glamour, and social value are both constructed and responded to" (21). Children are surrounded by these images, toys, and objects that begin to constitute as normal and eventually, truthful. The reasoning behind this, according to Struken and Cartwright is that, "much of the power of photography still lies in the shared belief that photographs are objective or truthful records of events" (17). States: 1. Ken Burns slide down the image, slowly revealing the last frame containing Moana, allowing viewer to compare images. 2. Audio from "A Whole new World" plays during the image movement the ironically note that each of these stories occur with similar characters in the same world 3. The triptych dissolves into the text to allow for closer reading of the rationale. States: 1. The first ad ever begins playing to take us back to the beginning of consumer culture: 2. Fades into the text above 3. Triptych appears over text and the results of this concept are clearly portrayed Conclusion Interactive Map Vanessa's Triptych Lewis Forde's Triptych So where does the creation of normalcy and the establishment of consumer culture lead us? To begin with, it keeps the state moving forward. When the state is functioning well because citizens are buying into dominant ideologies, broader goals may be acheived – not necessarily for the betterment of everyone. Struken and Cartwirhgt point out that, "the modern state has a vested interest in the maintainence and regulation of its citizens; in order to function properly it needs citizens who are willing to work, to fight in wars," and if necessary, die (97). This concept of docile bodies creates a society of uniformity and conformity that can result in many benefits: scientific progress, social harmony, etc. Nevertheless, this society can easily be manipulated and controlled by those creating these dominant images. And, "because we as viewers of advertising images do not often think of the ways in which they are operating as ideological texts, these images often have the power to affect our self-images" (98). We will willingly participate and cooperate with the society – living or dying due to the decisions of others. The Impact of Docile Bodies Are we then helpless? Pesimistically, Struken and Cartwright note that, "the lone oppositional reading of a single viewer may mean nothing compared to the popularity of a particular cultural product" (59). Yes, perhaps we are helpless. But then again,maybe not. After all, "power thus is most effective when it is invisible and unverifiable" (99). So, if the dominant and invisible powers that perpetuate this dominant ideology are called out and exposed, their power can lose its deathly grip. Individuals have the choice to buy into the idea of docile bodies or reject it for the natural instability it has by its very nature. But, as Prince EA points out in the video above, that power lies within the individual who must first, 'wake up'. One of themes I noticed surface repeatedly throughout the course was the concept of docile bodies. Struken and Cartwright discuss the impact of this concept at length: "a central aspect of Foucault's theory is that systems are in place that encourage us to self-regulate without any active threat of punishment"
