We’re in a waiting line, waiting for devices to complete our tasks.
For one second or a minute, maybe. While that progress bar reaches towards 100%, our brains yearn for something similar.
Micro-moments represent a chance to experience and capture now-ness. Tao Lin’s haikus grab hold of this essence, cracking through the shiny touch-screen of our day’s greatest façade. Known for his bestselling novel “Taipei”, the US citizen of Taiwanese decent regularly writes micro poems. His “Selected Tweets” have just been released, some of which can be found here in this edition of SEEK.
