Vivid interruptions of sound and images fragment the psychic landscape of a thirty-eight-year-old woman who becomes obsessed with the social-media presence of the young woman who broke up her relationship. The latest entry in Daniel Chew and Micaela Durand’s ongoing examination of the embodied experience of our hybrid online-IRL existence, 38 mines contemporary life’s nuanced exchanges between longing and looking, voyeurism and the desire to be seen.
