making it mine

I drawing I did of my hand, drawing, long ago, when I was nineteen. My new computer finally arrived, and I’ve spent every spare hour creating it in my image: adding my photos, my documents, my friends, my connections, my links, my colours, my appointments, my preferences. It can talk with my phone so now my phone knows my life as well. I use my keyboard, camera and pencil to describe myself in words and images, in connections and preferences: This is me, I say, this is how I see myself. This is how I experience the world.
