Oriol Subirada – Why I love media

Media, from movies to memes, connects you to others in a deep, intrinsicate way, different from anything else. A person on the other side of the globe, who you could never think of meeting, might feel the exact same way you did when you both saw an article in the news, or a funny picture on the internet, or a movie in the cinema.

This extra sensorial net built around the globe that is media, that only deepens and grows, catches all of us like flies, but at the same time, connects us all and allows us to share and live experiences, thoughts and ideas that we could not share otherwise.

This for me is media, a lovely yet dangerous trap that I cannot wait to step on every morning
