Week 5 – Task 1

In the video Don Levy discusses the idea of sharing ideas, how we have evolved from having drawings of walls in cave to writing, to video to virtual reality. Levy continued and explained how the difference between virtual and reality has become more and more of a blur, and it has therefore become very hard to differentiate.

This visual text relates to the the TED talk video I watched and also to Mirzoeff. This relates to what Levy was talking about specifically being unable to determine the difference between virtual depiction and the reality of it. In this image we see the true power of media and its ability to manipulate what they want you to see. The correlation with Mirzoeff is through the threat of war in this picture.
