Elizabeth by LA Warman
An improvised talk on the topic of the internet.
Recorded in 2015 on an iPhone 5 while walking around Amherst, MA. LA writes, "The statement, "If we could fully be on the internet then we would not have to make money" is false." LA writes, "She was scared and wanted to be alone. Alone in the small town where everyone knew her name. Where people saw her long hair and read her as hetero. She is a body who hides. Who is hiding in the digital."
