Instagram is Destroying the Creative Artist

Winter 2022

A 2-minute video exploring how the Instagram algorithm is destroying the artist's creativity.

The Final Result


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
