Reportage

Written by

Qudsia is trying to live above and beyond several clichés in her life, including this one: ‘the only thing constant is change’. So far life has had the last laugh, so she has chosen to just laugh along. By education, she is a psychologist and a social scientist. By experience, she has worked as a broadcast journalist, a development professional and a writer/researcher. The one thing that she keeps coming back to, are words. She loves the art of writing, loves to read and often silently edits text as she reads. Her dreams for the future include building a life around words, storytelling and the existential questions she loves indulging in.

The Self(ie)ish Appetite: Love, Longing & ‘Likes’


papercut   SHARE THIS ARTICLE

In a world where we’re all living increasingly double lives – virtual and not – the boundaries between what’s real and what’s staged seem to be fast disappearing. The visual and digital narrative has not only changed the way we connect with each other, it has also shaped the way we approach happiness, self-image and personal connection. In line with our theme of Appetite, we explore in this video, whether our consumption of digital media and visual performance is an insatiable one. Is it possible that what we see – in media, online, in movies, songs, on our Twitter feeds and Facebook timelines – and all that we seek as people, as social and sexual beings, may be affecting our appetites for love, intimacy and personal connections, in real time?
