I see a self as an ever-changing and virtual “center of a narrative gravity”. As thus the self can be seen as an entirely abstract entity which is not located (or even tied) into any specific organ or neural structure of an individual, or any other connected natural or artificial structure or system.
Today’s digital media environments are under constant change; continuously updating and changing media contents and elements, and their complex visual, textual and associative relationships form ever-changing unique patterns for endless interpretation. Thus the interpretation of one’s status-message, photo or blog entry can vary depending on the other contents that are visible simultaneously in the same context. Different types of narrative patterns become intermingled in this huge dynamic jigsaw puzzle, in which every piece can change in form, style, meaning and function.
