Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


This project has a focus on the topic body ideal and how this topic have an effect on the young adult in the age of 20-30 years. We use the 3 dimensions from the Hum-Tek classes to get an understanding about the topic, the user, and a media called Instagram. We will be using multiple theories created by Pierre Bourdieu, Michel Foucault and Lisbeth Thorlacius for the dimensions. The dimensions consist of Subject, Technology and Society, & Technological, Systems and Artefacts & Design and Construction. We have used the TRIN-Model by Jørgensen to analyze Instagram as technology. In the end of this project we will be having a communication article which is a educated guess to answer our problem statement. By using a survey and a focus group interview, we concluded that Instagram has an effect on the users and their perspective on body ideals. Our project is rooted in the science theory hermeneutics, which includes the hermeneutic spiral, which consist of some preunderstanding which leads to a new understanding, over new knowledge which continues in a circle.
