It explores the technological processes that increasingly convene social life. Via a set of interdisciplinary literature, it tells this story by looking at how digital media morphs social realities and relationships into digital languages and visual aesthetics that get used within a sort of social algorithm to calculate and actualise everyday situations and events.
