Consuming Commodified Selves – Accelerated Identity Co-Construction Dynamics Through Fashion Performances on Instagram

This paper enhances the understanding of the bi-directional relationship between performers as commodified selves and consumers in digital environments. Drawing on performativity theory, this study illuminates accelerated identity co-construction dynamics through visual fashion performances on Instagram. Analysis of interview data identifies three such dynamics: affirming, emulating, and immersing in dreams.
