This Too Too Molten Flesh

Julie Rrap - Fleshpool, 2004

'The transformation of place, and the intrusion of distance into local activities, combined with the centrality of mediated experience, radically change what 'the world' actually is. This is so both on a level of the 'phenomenal world' of the individual and the general universe of social activity within which collective social life is enacted. Although everyone has a local life, phenomenal worlds for the most part are truly global.'

From Modernity and Self-Identity by Anthony Giddens.
