It could be a trend in social media, a special effect in filmmaking, a behavior with digital devices, a new technology for creativity, a digital work of art you saw in a museum... or on the internet...or on the street. It should be something that ignites your curiosity about how humans and digital media interact...

So... here is something I have recently noticed...
These days I get much of my current news via my facebook stream.
It makes for a strange mashup of world events... when scrolling through, I watch a video of Miley Cyrus twerking on tv, and then the next thing I view is the riveting reunion of a Syrian father and his young child. I wonder what this does to us ... the quick mix of media sources, from the frivolous to the tragic, juxtaposed in such close proximity.
