Technological convergence discard traditional notions of time and space. One can experience a live performance taking place in Morocco, or research to minute detail a niche subculture from the 1950s and appropriate their fashion; we are no longer bound by geographical location, nor the moment we exist in.  

As camera phones, surveillance, data storage, and online streaming platforms are becoming ever more ubiquitous, every moment is documented and all that has happened until now can be recollected; in a sense we are living in the past and the future at the same time.

As our experience of time and space becomes continually less concrete, so does our cultural narrative. I cannot help but believe that the very fabric of reality around us is fluctuating due to the growingly subjective nature of cultural experience.
