Week Five. Individual Task

For this week’s individual task I have chosen Look magazine from my cabinet of curiosities.

1. Look is a fashion and celebrity magazine and includes aspirational celbrities and lifestyles. My media object could influence the minds of a vulnerable audience by making the audience believe they need the clothes/shoes/handbags- any of the items featured- else they will not be fashionable or up-to-date with their peers. A vulnerable audience could feel they need the items featured, or the same items as the celebrities in the magazine; this could lead them into purchasing things they don’t need and possibly even cannot afford.

2. The possible negative effects my media object could have on the audience and society is basically an audience with members who are all in debt.
