Existential Friday: Emergency Room Selfie
This Existential Friday, with the aid of Emergency Waiting Room Selfies, let us take a moment contemplate our physical & psychological health and reflect on what is of true value. We went to Emergency earlier in the week to avoid the Black Friday crush.
Canadian Black Fridays are less injurious for the following reasons:
1) We have to wear layers of winter clothing.
2) Watching/playing hockey has provided us with great body chequing in the aisles.
3) We are very polite. Sorry, but it is true.
Here is an early Medical Selfie – poor fellow had an ear issue.
This last image is Robert Cornelius’ self-portrait First Ever “Selfie” (1839).
The selfie – an existential expression that has become social media content. We construct context , invest it with a set of values, beliefs & ideologies and convey intended & unintended messages. Who will be looking at us in 174 years ? What messages have we sent to future generations ?
