What happens when we aren’t uploading ourselves, but uploading our community?
These days it’s not unusual for us to communicate with each other through sound bites and visual extracts of our selves, and our lives. We share success, smiles, intrigue, love- and we create a landscape characterized by the theme ‘me, me and more me’… what if we share something greater than just ‘I’ what can be possible? The ‘I’ in our identity is what sets us apart from others, what makes us unique. It is the “I” who plans our lives, decides who we will be, how we will get there… Developing as an empathetic human, means developing as “I”. Writing our own story induces a synesthetic translation, making each “I” a central character in the story of our community… > me.
