Idea:
Unsubscribe is a split in reality. It’s not just that the virtual bleeds into the real and vice versa – they are now mixed into one and they scrambled our brains. Unsubscribe is creating an unreal image on social media. It is information served to us through increasingly narrow channels, creating alternative facts, where fake, real and virtual are one. It’s decreased anonymity, amassing large quantities of private and sensitive data on every topic, on every activity. It is a posthumanist world sustained by electronics, enhanced with interfaces, soon also with AR/VR.
