Who watches them?
They watch themselves, but who else does, since everyone can get off virtually speaking from the same domestically integrated circuit? There will soon be nothing more than self-communicating zombies, whose lone umbilical relay will be their own feedback image (…) perpetually passing their time retelling their own story.

something is lived is always [at least] the second time it has
Tiqqun, Preliminary Materials For a Theory of the Young-Girl
Applying languages of contemporary culture, my practice reflects on the commoditization of inter-personal relationships and the questionable possibility of closeness and intimacy in the face of the Spectacle.
