Beauty Parlour #02: About Self Representation - he you me
This Beauty Parlour was the second public meeting in preparation of ikikik! (mememe!). ikikik! was an exhibition about self-representation on the internet, that started in July 2008.
This time it was up to Viola van Alphen, Mattias Duyves, Marco Ugolini and Katja Novitskova to each present a short presentations on the subject.
Several short lectures and discussions were held during the evening on the subject of the following questions.
-Are we creating socially accepted profiles and images of ourselves? Am I still myself when I try to represent myself professionally, also on the internet?
-What exactly is self representation?
-How do I present myself in interaction with others? How do I see myself?
-What is the development of the Me?
-When creating a profile or when we think of ourselves in real life, do we see ourselves first as he, as you and then as me?
Lecturer at the University of Amsterdam - (International school for Humanities & Social Sciences) discussed the questions above and also further more:
- He You Me
- mirror, scenario and mask
- Dorian Gray and Narcissus

showed elements of self-representation online with numerous examples (from profiles to chat to anything) and then discussed its connection to self-representation offline (hair, clothes, make-up, body language, speech etc) to see where the two meet, what is good and bad online-offline fashion, what is the function of subcultures.
