About Real Life — Real Life
About Real Life — Real Life
I’ve argued that “online” and “offline,” like “body” and “mind,” aren’t like two positions on a light switch — a perspective I've called digital dualism. Instead, all social life is made of both information and material; it's technological and human, virtual and real. Together with friends and colleagues, I’ve theorized an experience of the internet based less in cyberpunk and more in body horror — and not just horror but other things too, like joy. With Real Life, we will be building on that perspective.

Telling stories about crime is hard. That’s no excuse for not doing better.
It was May 2003. The photographer and I were in a grocery store parking lot in the better part of Washington, DC. We chain-smoked and waited for disaster to strike. When the police scanner crackled we cranked up the car and headed across town, over the Anacostia River to one of the most chronically violent […]
