Instagram is Destroying the Creative Artist
A 2-minute video exploring how the Instagram algorithm is destroying the artist's creativity.
Within this project, we had to create a research reflection on the topics we discussed in a series of classes covering big data law.
As an artist, I chose to focus on the Instagram algorithm and how it was chipping away at artists' creativity.
I looked at:
Shadow banning and freedom of expression
Disabling features like “recent hashtags” during times of crisis and what that means for artists
The push to video
Instagram is an app for entertainment now instead of an app for artists
Sharing personal information/stories increases engagement and how that relates to privacy
