My relationship with the media changes as it comes. I would say that it is a really complicated, but easily explainable one. I love the media, sometimes I hate the media, other times I am really excited about it, another time it annoys me. For me, my relationship to media reflects my own relationship with myself. It works as a mirror, but of course nothing is as simple as being put into words. This metaphor is not a constant. It does not reflect my state of mind every single minute of every single hour of every single day. But mostly it feels like it is a part of me, a braver or more explicit one. That is the main reason it feels like mirroring, because eventually my use of media is me being myself in a specific environment. And thanks to the technologies and futuristic minds of scientist, I can explore this little “being” which exists and appears throughout media and that it is an experience worth appreciating.
