The Revolution of Awareness

Mikkel Jensen & Alastair Goodwin

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The aim of this project is to outline, and investigate the ways in which social media has changed the realm of possibilities within the public sphere, if that is the case. Moreover will it investigate, why this arguably lead to a revolution of awareness, with the addition of an dynamic online public sphere. The concept of an " online public sphere", has irrevocably changed the public sphere, and given it more reach and power than ever before. The project will seek to display this by the use of a comparative study, of two arguably controversial movies The Interview and Team America: World Police. This comparison will highlight the capacity for innovative collective action, and how the dissemination of information has seemingly changed. It will also shed a light on how social movements and their opponents, are able to operate within the current media and techno scapes.
