#1

1.) FACESWAPPING

When you contract your facial muscles to the mapped filters in a FaceSwap session, you discover a contemporary way to express yourself. Downside is that you need the SnapChat app to play.

#2

2.) EDWARD SNOWDEN’S TWITTER ACCOUNT

This mysterious 64 character code was deleted immediately after it was tweeted, prompting online rumors that Snowden had activated a “Dead Man’s Switch”, and was in imminent danger, and/or possibly dead. His Twitter remained silent for ten days, before he eventually confirmed that the death rumors were “greatly exaggerated”

3.) DAWN OF THE NEW UGLY

Facebook group that intermingles occult science, nephilim, surveillance & conspiracy overtones with internet aesthetics.

#4

4.) WIKIPEDIA HYPERLINKS

The fortunate happenstance of a random click to a link in a Wikipedia article is verification that you can learn something new on the internet everyday. Information is a rhizome.
