If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?
Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.
A Face Plus a Space: Social media, Connect or Disconnect?
First off I am a dad of two daughters and a great little son. I love them and my wife Collette deeply and when that happens to a person whatever they would have been is always altered in a profound way. That said, I started PoetHouse Art a few years ago because I have a passion for The Arts but even more then that I love to challenge young minds and hearts to develop a voracious fervor for life. I am currently working as a Life Coach with College Excel.
This proposal is for a fast paced, amusing piece that takes a look at our cultures love of social media (mine included). It focuses on the measures, we take to connect; What is at stake? Are we managing our time or are we being managed and manipulated in some way, so that our time we waste on a visual taste of people who are just a face in a crowd of pixels on a screen. Is it real? Are there ways to really connect or is it just a scene that brings us only closer to the persona of the “maybe me” we want to be, this maybe me we ALL want others to see?
