INDIVIDUAL & SOCIETY
Our relations to these surroundings,
New technological apparatus
In a wireless society
-Liberating and Enslaving -
the power of the "Controller" secured by the paranoia of ours

humans converted into data
Codification of time & space
a world made of software & hardware.
society of performance
in a no space private
like a food chain
invisible network that tides people together.
