Transcript of Hyperreality
A life which cannot be (e.g. the perfect image of celebrity's invented persona)
TV, especially Reality Shows - as long as the camera is there, one could never live as if it wasn't there, in contrary to what producers of the show say
Many world cities and places which did not evolve as functional places with some basis in reality as if they were created "out of nothing", like Disney World, Dubai, Las Vegas
Virtual Reality: video games like Second Life where you can get married or work like you would be working in a real life company
As a conclusion, exemplary effects of hyperreality: Role models One danger of hyperreality is that people may look to hyperreal images as role models, when the images don’t even represent real people. This can cause people to strive for an unattainable ideal, or lead to a lack of healthy role models. What is happening in modern times is confusing celebrity worship with hero worship, which is bad because people come dangerously close to depriving themselves of all real models. So we lose sight of the men and women who do not simply seem great because they are famous but who are famous because they are great. Effects: Politics The creation of hyperreal images has also changed the way people look at political candidates. For example, there’s no way of knowing whether President Bush is really a ‘good old boy’ from Texas, or if he purposefully created that image before entering politics. Politicians, using PR specialists, often refashion themselves into images the viewers would want them to be. So if hyperreality is changing the way people vote, that’s a profound effect on a society. Effects, last but not least: A Real Effect In one of his books, Baudrillard further explains how the hyperreal can cause real effects, stating that if someone tries to put on a “fake hold-up,” it will still cause real consequences: “a police officer will really shoot on sight; a bank customer will faint and die of a heart attack; they will really turn the phoney ransom over to you”. Some remarkable quotations "A real without origin or reality." - Jean Baudrillard
"The authentic fake." - Umberto Eco
"Life itself is a quotation." Jorge Luis Borges
