…unique,…

…uniqueness,…

   Their virtue resides in their transparency, their functionality, their absence of passion and artifice.

 

   This is communication in its purest form, for there is so much intimacy here except with the screen, and with an electronic text that is no more than a design filigreed into life.

 

…when it is so simple to communicate?

 

…deciphered in any depth:

…explored instantaneously,…

…interlocutor…

   We no longer have the spectator’s distance form the stage-all theatrical conventions are gone.

 

  …artificial paradises of infinity.
