something that’s come up in my conversations all pandemic: social media, The Algorithm™, aesthetics, authenticity—like what even is authenticity? how do we measure something so subjective and unquantifiable, especially on an *image*-based platform that prioritizes commodification?

how do we make these calls according to what strangers share and don’t share about their personal lives? why is there pressure to stay true to “my real self” when i don’t have a singular defining self to begin with? why should i reconcile the disconnect between what i share and how others measure me against their criteria for authentic expression?

which is a long rambling way of saying that instagram feels extra suffocating lately... i’m hyper aware of how many people are perceiving me and there’s this pressure to be relatable in a way that conforms to a personal brand and aesthetic sensibility. it’s almost like the /appearance/ of being real has more value and it’s anxiety-inducing

like it took me way too long to pick this overly edited selfie bc it looks good on the grid~!!! working on being here just for the fun of it, sharing things that move me, and meeting cool people

akira kurosawa’s dreams (1990) reminds me of this 2002 interview with hayao miyazaki: 

“I told Miyazaki I love the "gratuitous motion" in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.

"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It's called ma. Emptiness. It's there intentionally."

Is that like the "pillow words" that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?

"I don't think it's like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it's just busyness [...]”

Which helps explain why Miyazaki's films are more absorbing and involving than the frantic cheerful action in a lot of American animation. I asked him to explain that a little more.

"The people who make the movies are scared of silence, so they want to paper and plaster it over," he said. "They're worried that the audience will get bored. They might go up and get some popcorn.

But just because it's 80 percent intense all the time doesn't mean the kids are going to bless you with their concentration. What really matters is the underlying emotions—that you never let go of those.

What my friends and I have been trying to do since the 1970s is to try and quiet things down a little bit; don't just bombard them with noise and distraction. And to follow the path of children's emotions and feelings as we make a film. If you stay true to joy and astonishment and empathy you don't have to have violence and you don't have to have action. They'll follow you. This is our principle."

this is what learning is: you suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way*. at the beginning of the pandemic i had the arrogance to believe that i knew how to navigate isolation because i always chose to be alone. being forced to disconnect for over a year without my own say in the matter really shook the foundations of those beliefs

my understanding of love and connection (romantic, platonic, familial, and on a world scale) has been challenged and made new ten times over. sending u gentleness and peace if you’re struggling to reconcile what you thought you knew and what you know now, like i am
