Comment/Questions





I might argue that the "performing narrative" is a driving force behind the development of human expression through art:  painting, dancing, sculpting, singing, activing, drawing, etc.  It follows that if this narrative becomes more abstract and non-essential as social technology progresses, the arts must necessarily be affected.  Accordingly, we should address some questions:


     - What are the implications of expanding the non-essential narrative?



     - Does Facebook help or hinder this expansion?



     - What would a future of abstracted narrative look like?



     - Are there certain forms of human expression/art that are immune to the effects of this changing narrative?



     - How would we describe the current state of the Facebook narrative?



     - Is there a mutually-exclusive "Facebook narrative" at all?



     - What are the political ramifications of this?
