Visual Media Literacy: How important it is to be consistent with your goals and take care when expressing yourself in style. They say: Knock – it will open for you, ask – you will get it! How much do we actually take care of expression when creating our business strategy? The term is a tact that is passed on to others who participate in structuring our work.
If we say that someone has a vision, it means that he has united everything that is needed by his work.
Mirjana Prljević with T²: TESLA SQUARE for SpectrUm:
1.How important is Visual Media Literacy? Have we forgotten etiquette when it comes to visual expression?
MP: Visual media literacy is both a deeply personal and a general social category. Everything goes from the mind of one individual to the mind of another individual, from the creator to the recipient of that message. Whether it is sent through a product, service, message or video is less important. What matters is the impulse that guides the creator when creating. The process of digital transformation that we live in, which is becoming more and more powerful, instructs us to clearly understand and then harmonize the analog and digital signal around us and in us. The concept I am a follower of is “In a healthy spirit, a healthy body”, and not the other way around, as we have often been served since we were little. It is the spirit that drives both literacy and the notion of the meaning of words. Yes, the very words that can revive and kill, illuminate or hurt, separate or unite you with someone. It is the word that is basically etiquette, just like non-verbal communication through sublimated messages that the media, in addition to verbal, send to the viewer. The morals and ethics of the media, educational institutions and governments, as well as the literate individual are most important here. From what I see in the media and in society, we certainly have room to work on us, because that is how we come to a healthy spirit, a healthy body, and thus a healthy society. It is a great responsibility when you address the Word.
2.More Octave Business, through T²: TESLA SQUARE, offers us a completely new content based on real values. How “easy” is it for you to reconcile this with today’s times?
MP: There is nothing easy or difficult in my understanding of work. I learned that a long time ago. It is important to have a good preparation and coordination of the team that implements together with you the whole process of creating one product, in our case a series. Every guest, every message and topic of the show is in harmony. When you strive for it, as I do in my approach, then it shows itself that way. Obstacles along the way are there to warn you to repeat something, to be even better, or to change something in your approach. They always have their Why?
3.Average statistics show that information is placed quickly and in large quantities. How to dose information? How much can we actually “drink”?
MP: Information has great power. The most important thing is to listen to yourself, constantly and as far as possible in the peace of nature. The amount, as you call it, of information depends on the individual to the individual and his capacity to harmonize the quality and quantity of that information. It is not the same when you listen and watch something you love, what you want to learn and what makes you fulfilled, and what some media or individuals bombard you with constant repetition and aggressive performances in order to direct your perception of attention towards it. It is very important to make that difference and get to know yourself as much as you can. It’s like having a selection of books you read or movies you watch. The power of human perception is such an important topic that departments, scientific disciplines, and symposia are dedicated to it. The struggle for the mind is constant, and thus get to know your mind and yourself and evaluate for yourself what content and how much information to adopt.
4.Your work experience is great. What is the business principle you stick to?
MP: The principle of harmony of energy, frequency and vibration is a principle I have chosen in life since I was sixteen. Then I transferred it to my business. Energy is always there, and it is up to you whether you use it constructively or not, all in the function of creating more value and thus creating a new value or service. Frequency and vibration are my spirituality and mission woven into concrete works. So I started, I continued, and so it is today. The only time we have is now – the present moment and when your energy, frequency and vibration are in harmony with your spirit and mind then you are fully aware of your creative potential that creates. It is a principle that I deeply respect and follow in my work.
Advantages of today’s business. What should we pay special attention to?
MP: Definitely that business today carries with it that dimension of the Higher Octave Business in terms of understanding reality. Digitization and digital transformation have made our information and work faster, and whether it will be of better quality depends on the way an individual manages his time and tasks. The advantages of today’s business, in which new occupations and new professions appear, which only ten years ago did not even exist in the announcement, offer a great challenge to each of us. The challenge of new learning, working on oneself and acquiring new skills and competencies in the field of non-formal education. There is such a large selection and range of courses, workshops, new departments and specializations, that the choice is ours. Will we work on ourselves and improve the quality and standard of our lives or not. And our choices are our life. Everyone decides according to themselves. Or so it should be. It is definitely worth thinking about.
