1| LIQUID STATE

Heterotopia

tears, saliva, sweat, blood, semen, plasma, streams, currents, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, rain

life flows, time flows, information flows, money flows

endless flow of reappropriation, repurposing and transmutation

reposts, reblogs, comments, likes, retwitts, shares

washed away geopolitical context, diluted history and temporality

transnational hybrid existence, avatars

technocapitalist condition, capital flow, ‘liquidity’ as assets converted into cash

Technology has taken control of us

No stability, no security, nothing to hold onto
