Memories vs Selfie Memories

Memories vs Selfie Memories

April 29, 2019 0 Comments


For many people, taking pictures is a fundamental part of everyday life. This includes documenting every detail to later edit and publish it on social media. How does this affect our real memories? Do we stop enjoying moments to capture them? Does the way we express ourselves change? Are we remembering through photos and not by the moments lived?

Currently, everything is stored on a cloud, a drive, or on our phones, impacting our ability to remember things. That leads to us not being able to identify the experiences we are having in our day to day life. We stop seeing details and living  because we are worried about capturing the best shots. We get distracted by the powerful things that are falling into a world of digital memory and not our own personal recollection.



This doesn't mean we have to stop taking pictures or sharing with others the experiences we have lived. It's just a reminder to stop creating false memories and instead enjoy the present moment; to be more natural in our lives and not to be ruled by the number of followers, likes, and comments that we get. Let the pictures be a part of the memory, not the whole experience. Remember by ourselves and not by the pictures that were taken. Don't lose memory, instead, make memories.

Guy Debord, recognized for his famous work, The Society of the Spectacle, points out that we live in a kind of screen where everyone wants to be visible. Meaning that if you do not show yourself, you do not exist. Technology is an essential part of our lives, but it shouldn't limit who we are. Let's be more conscious and enjoy every moment because that is life.



Take a moment to:
-See details
-Appreciate
-Be thankful
-Remember
-Feel
-Live
-Be you

 

In this way, you are enjoying and living the moment. "Photos are good memories, but too many photos impoverish our enjoyment of life, which must be savoured through our five senses."
