The main environment I find myself influenced by, is the internet. Whether I want it to be or not. So much so that I feel it creeping inside me and taking control of my vocabulary, my dress sense, the way I think and the ways in which I present myself physically and virtually. A parasite that takes away most of my day. Programmed to show me exactly what I want to see. Making me want to scroll through endless images and articles. Leaving me feeling drained but wanting more. With images and opinions being posted, shared, reposted, liked, unliked and screenshot, what was once yours now belongs to the world of the internet too.
A ‘cyborg’ by definition is ‘a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts’. With the brain being eaten alive by the World Wide Web, where does that leave us?
