WILL EVANS – It's Fire Escapes All The Way Down

674

Published on

This is a poetic exploration of identity, trust, and most importantly, placeness in the manufacture of identity in mediated online networks. How does one project and perform notions of self-hood and identity when space itself is a poor metaphor? If space is not the right metaphor for our engagements, then how does one find a "sacred place"? I'll move from that to temporal notions of self-in-moment and constructions of sacred moments captured in time and shared through life streams.
