Face Value

From Rhizome Artbase
1996
Description

Rodriguez's "Face Value" is an experimental hypertext essay exploring the relationship between social media and self-exchange. This 1996 hypertext bears relevance to our current media landscape, with excerpts such as "The participant fetishizes mediation as communication becomes faster." and "Virtual presence can only occur if the participant rejects the physical community in which the participant lives".
