I have often made work that involves new or near future technologies because I sort of feel like every possible story has already been told in terms of basic “themes” — speculative fiction or sci-fi is a fun way to interrogate otherwise heavily explored ideas like love, repression, isolation, etc. On a personal level, I am a fairly Aggressively Online person and I spend a lot of time thinking about the psychology of someone like me who perhaps uses the internet to hide from or make sense of life offline. I personally express and explore a lot of aspects of my identity online that are difficult for me to deal with in “real” life (I put “real” in quotes because obviously digital spaces are real… you get what I mean!). Fantasy existed before the internet, of course, but you were somewhat limited by your own memory and thoughts. The internet is a never-ending blackhole that becomes more and more loaded with personal information and reflections of billions of people’s lives. How does that change our relationship to ourselves and the people we know?
