Self-Transformation and Performativity of Social Media Images

Joonas Rokka, NEOMA, France
This paper investigates how self-reflecting digital images entail performative agency and act as self-shaping devices with multiple generative effects. By way of critical assessment and empirical examination of consumer-produced social media images of champagne consumption, I map out the multitude of potentialities these images open up for self-transformation.
