Today we created our own vaporwaves. If you don’t know what is a vaporwave? A Vaporwave is a microgenre of electronic music and an Internet meme that emerged in the early 2010s. The style is defined by its appropriation of 1980s and 1990s mood music styles, internet imagery glitch art, anime, pop culture and many more. If I’m being honest, I didn’t know what a vaporwave was either but I have heard of the term. It was really fun and cool to create my own. For my first vaporwave, I don’t like it all that much but i might make another. I basically just grabbed a bunch of transparent vaporwave graphics from google and just copied and pasted them onto the Vaporwave pink and blue background grid in Photoshop. I mostly chose images/graphics from the 90’s considering that I was born in the mid 90’s and I loved everything about the 1990’s and the early 2000’s. It just sucks that a lot of things that debuted during these times are no longer available such as television shows, toys, clothing, sneakers, etc.
Below is my Vaporwave:
