It happened a long time ago – or did it ?

Consider this what if,  towards the end of the Medieval Period there was a shift from Illuminated Manuscripts to the use of Kirlian Photography. Everyone would be taking self portraits, well those who could afford the latest app, ………

The self-portrait, what is its purpose/message ?  An affirmation of one’s sense of existence ?  An expression of one’s hopes and fears  made manifest,  and then conveyed in an image to the world ? Or have we reduced our image to media content that is incorporated into a constructed reality and then have it consumed and repurposed by the viewing audience ? Do we illuminate and reveal ourselves or attempt to hide behind a manufactured context ? What is the true story of the text ?
