Super Participation

I was fascinated by the scope of this project, because the concept of sharing our lives online is not unfamiliar to us, however, this assignment pushes the boundaries of sharing to a level which some of us may not be comfortable with sharing.

The whole idea of super participation would be to share as much possible in relation to what is on-going in our lives, no matter how minute.

I enjoy packing my days with errands or tasks to complete so that I do not feel as though I am wasting my time. Thus, we decided to record a day which all 4 of us had something to do.

My day began with having a meal with an old friend of mine. We went to Ghim Moh Market to eat lunch. I tend not to share images of what I’m having for meals because I feel that it is not engaging and it is not a reflection of who I am as a person, because I do not associate myself strongly to food.

After which, I went to the gym to burn off all the excess food I ate during lunch.

Facebook has this interesting feature which allows users to post a 360 degree view of their surrounding. This helps the viewers feel more immersed with the poster.

I also noticed that I was not the only one getting my sweat on! Reuben was at a floorball competition and he was probably working even harder than me because it was his finals. These are the things which I would not have known if we did not have Super Participation.

One interesting thing I noticed was that Brendan, Reuben and I all had photography related errands to run on the same day. I was covering one of my hall events and Brendan and Reuben had to do research for another assignment.

After my shoot, I went to have supper with my friend and I came across this, which I had to share. I just thought that it was so funny and I shared it on facebook because it is the kind of humor I relate to. (I know, I’m pretty lame)

And once again, I shared food, which is not common for me.

I was exhausted by the time I reached home so I did not have anything scheduled for the night. My groupmates, however, were night owls and they continued to stay up and post on the group!
