The Creative Lens #3 - Change in the Modern World
I want to share with you a harsh reality I've discovered as a content creator.
The world as it stands today seems to resist change.
The problem lies in the fact that the social media world (the real world?) is governed by algorithms. I can provide numerous examples of creators who persist in sharing the same content on their profiles and yet continue to experience growth.
I've often pondered why people still engage with their content, even when it's essentially the same thing being posted repeatedly. Unfortunately, I haven't found a satisfactory answer to this question, and I wanted to share this rather disheartening perspective on social media with you.
Here's an example of what I mean. I've mentioned, my favorite creator and digital entrepreneur, in some of my previous works because I typically draw inspiration from him. Some time ago, he conducted an experiment by posting nearly identical pictures of his living room on Instagram. The result? All four posts went viral, despite the repetitive content.
There are many similar examples, such as the fact that platforms like Instagram encourage users to maintain a consistent posting style. The algorithm doesn't favor those who deviate from their established content.
Nevertheless, despite these challenges, I strongly believe that it's essential to continually explore new avenues. It's only through this exploration that we can construct a better version of ourselves, as we accumulate diverse experiences.
For instance, as a creator, I've recently embarked on new challenges by collaborating with a local restaurant, even though I've never created content for this type of endeavor before.

I have also recently launched my first physical prints, which had been a secret project I worked on over the past few months.
