I liked your example, and I liked the irony in it too. It’s funny that in the film this is suppose to be an authentic moment no one else will see or ever copy, yet as a movie the whole purpose is that other people see it. I understand that in the story or the plot of the movie it is an original authentic moment. However the fact that this moment is in a movie seen by thousands of people taking away from the authentic-ness of it only being seen by one person seems ironic. It brings up the question of a viewer or a reader changing what they see or read, simply by seeing it or reading it. If I’m understanding everything correctly this kind of touches on some of the things we’ve talked about with Latour.
Thanks for sharing the video!
The topic of authenticity reminded me of this clip from the movie Garden State where Natalie Portman does a weird little dance complete with strange sound effects and tells Zach Braff that he has just witnessed a completely original moment in human history that no one will ever copy again throughout human existence. Is that a way of defining your authentic self? At least for a moment….?
