Post-human primates are out on the streets preserving their image for contemporary and future sapiens, always from the best angles. Selfies allow irl ppl the ability to control mode of their physical appearance, as well as personally contribute to the greater visual dialogue of beauty and desirability in 2014. JILL WALKER RETTBERG talks about some pictures she took of herself; it’s another installment of PURPLE BLURB, a lecture series focusing on digital media and the writers and artists who make it. Rettberg is known for co-writing the first-ever academic paper on blogs, has published a book called Blogging and co-edited an anthology of scholarly articles on World of Warcraft. Her current work is based on exploring “technological representations of the self.”
