The Web

This book functions as documentation of a conversation held over the website Omegle, a chat room connecting strangers from across the world via their computers. The discussion was kept between two strangers with no prior information about the other or the circumstances of the conversation. 

The book considers how we attempt to develop intimacy and maintain connections with humans across spacetime, using the internet and technology as a platform. It also reflects on a want to empathize with other beings despite the vastness of human experience, fragility of information, and the limits to communication. 

“Your reality is different than mine and I want to understand it.”
