Consumers and Producers

"I am from the internet" claims Garance Dore.
Is she alone? A tribe of one born from digital
connection and abandoning traditional cultural heritages
of Irish, German, Italian, Puerto Rican, Nigerian...

In the rose colored past parents passed down culture
seen through accents, vernaculars, food, social mores,
and a connection to a physical location that shaped
the identity not only of a person, but of a people.

Today we glean culture from a screen,
behaviors and jargon clinging to our eyes and traveling
through our mind into our soul to form a new identity
less reliant on place and more grounded in connection
to an idea.
