a lot of what you write here makes sense to me. I am also wondering what the impact / relevance of new communication means re the rise of a fascist ideology. Think of radio and TV in the 30’s, and the social online and mobile media in our times.
I just found out about my breast cancer, and I can relate to all of what you wrote. For now, I find that controlling the angst is the most intense part, but my chemo has yet to start. And I’ll definitely get a cold cap!
Creating emotions has always been the privilege of the arts. So expect them to gradually seize the digital opportunity and turn its products into something more powerful.
Also we can see that social media is built on emotions and wonder whether they are their own art form.
