Title: Through the Looking Screen-Glass: The Invisible Labor of Commercial Content Moderators (CCM)
Name: Sienna Parker

Abstract:
On the internet, the scale of user-generated content reaches exuberant numbers of photos, videos, and posts. Social media websites must moderate this content to ensure that it befits their community standards. To do so, these companies hire commercial content moderators (CCMS) who are responsible for viewing flagged content. The job of CCMs requires viewing thousands of hours of video and photos that often contain violent and horrific imagery that can lead to trauma. However, CCMs and the traumatic nature of their work are largely invisible to the public eye. In this proposal, I have designed an experiential, multimedia exhibit for the public to gain a better understanding of the work of CCMs. This proposal includes a storyboard walkthrough and mock-up video of the exhibit in which viewers partake in a “game” simulating being a CCM. While viewers play the game, video cameras film them and manipulate their faces to age as a demonstration of the emotional toll of being a CCM.

Title: The Evolution of Beauty Trends Through Portraits
Name: Ashley Bruce

Abstract: Portrait beautification has been around since as long as there have been portraits. At the time they are made, portraits tend to showcase and embellish the beauty standards that were common at that time. This paper will explore self portraits over time with an emphasis on women, how they depict the beauty standards of the time, how they are edited to conform to those beauty standards, and the social impact this editing has. This paper will also look at standards across a few different cultures, but will have an emphasis on European countries.

The report is the main project, which was too big of a file so I had to split it into two parts. They are both attached. I have also included the presentation, although it is not as in depth as the report and missing some parts.
