100 to 200 word self analysis of person artifact
In this unit, we are talking about perception and culture. The items that we wear and the things we surround ourselves with tell a story about us. I want you to think of an item that you own that tells a story about you. We may not think too much about these items on a daily basis because they are a part of our everyday life. We form impressions of others based upon these very things. We call any physical item that can give someone a sense of that person’s culture an artifact. For example, a Rolex watch is an example of an artifact. What would you think if you saw someone wearing a Rolex watch?
Your task this week is to describe an artifact from your own life. I want you to describe the item (or even better-post a picture!). What does this item say about you? What does this item reflect about your culture’s values? Does it reflect positively or negatively on your self-concept?
