Treasure Island

Natasha Elizabeth Beatrice Williams

TapTap.


Computers.
They can hold a whole life.
Tap.

Phones.
They connect our lives.
Tap.

We're obsessed with connection.
TapTap.

Click click. Tap tap. Bleep bleep.

We lived without them before.
Now we can't.
Tap.

We need to feel connected.
We need togetherness.
Tap.

We're human, it's natural.
We need communities.
Tap.

We need reasurance through status comments.
Pictures.
Likes.
Love.
More statuses.
Tap.

Click click. Tap tap. Bleep bleep.

We're obsessed.
I'm obsessed.
I feel alone.
Connection is what I need.
Connection is what I get.
Tap.

Friends.
Family.
Partners.
Jobs.
Tap.

We need it all.
Work it harder, make it better, do it harder. Makes us stronger.
Does it?
Tap.

Click click. Tap tap. Bleep bleep.
