Create an outline of 5 topics of how The Impact of Quantified-Self Technology on Today’s Culture affects Artistic Links.
Also, I need a bibliography of at least 5 scholarly, academic references
that will be used to write the paper (refer to Week 1’s tutorial on
Scholarly References). Each student will list his/her references using
APA format, and provide a brief explanation of each resource indicating
how that resource will be used. The focus should be upon the student’s
specific research assignment. An approximate length of this bibliography
is between 2 – 3 pages. Each reference should have at least one or two
detailed paragraphs to go along with the scholarly reference.
General reference works such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, wikipedia,
howstuffworks.com will not be considered as sources meeting this
requirement. The list could include books, journal articles, industry
reports, authoritative web sites, manufacturers’ sites or sites from
research groups. Remember, all quotations, paraphrased material, images,
graphics and statistics must be referenced in your report, so make note
of all sources while compiling your research.
The subject is The Impact of Quantified-Self Technology on Today’s Culture. My portion of the subject is Artistic Links.
Artistic Links: How do musicians and artists react to the technology or
use the technology or incorporate the technology in their artistic
productions? For example, fiber optic lighting has been used on the
stage and in parades (Disney) for costuming. The drama term “In the
limelight,” for example, was derived from a lens/lighting system used in
lighthouses. Look at literature—perhaps science fiction or fantasy
stories—that predate the technology (Jules Verne, for example, wrote
about submarines before they were actually invented and used—though
Leonardo da Vinci had sketched the idea centuries before Verne). Are
there any songs, short stories, poems, plays, TV shows, or films that
directly make reference to the technology? Are there any “related”
literary works that apply? Is the artifact in a museum or will it be?
Why? How does the technology relate to concepts of beauty and novelty
and human creativity? How can people express their humanity through this
technology? An example: scientists experimenting with nano made a “nano
guitar” that actually played a tune, though it was subthreshold human
