Re: <nettime> Losing Aaron

Hi All,

I've used this article as a reference work for a current project of mine
called "Wish4[0]", a project based on a poetic interpretation of the maxim
?Be Careful What You Wish For?. The title of the work, *Wish4[0]*, is a
truncation ? and linguistic reworking ? of the idea of wish fulfilment in
the digital age, one where willing users and audience members are subjected
to an ?always-on? news cycle, where social media and content streaming are
the preferred method of information sourcing and privacy is an elastic

One of my intentions in creating "Wish4[0]" is to explore the pull of a
user?s desire to be continually digitally connected. This project takes as
its inspiration this perpetual tugging at a user?s consciousness by the
digital: each day, for 40 days, I?m posting a creative response that will
take as its immediate inspiration a headline ? or item - drawn from the
electronic news cycle of that specific day.

"Day 2" explored "Losing Aaron": http://wishforyouand.me/2014/01/05/day-2/.
