The internet is pressurising the representation of contemporary global events. All the players in this scene borrow from one another as they are all engaged in the same battle: to win your attention within the course of a few seconds. This is leading to a likely future scenario: where everything in the internet will not just be webbed, it will be coaglulated and, under certain climatic conditions, even sticky, threads of information will clump together with other threads in uncomfortable but compelling ways, political uprisings will melt together with photos of cats, popstars and plastic shoes, the images will start to interact with each other, borrowing pixels and trading between themselves, entertaining bedazzled bystanders.
