Lost and found in transmission
Having my family scattered across different timezones means I get the added privilege of experiencing New Year’s firework transmissions multiple times in one day – online through Skype, lagged and pixelated. As I was contemplating the absurdity of watching low-res fireworks, I found myself enthusiastically staring back from the black mirror. Narcissistic New Year’s Eve virtual firework spotting can be quite immersive in its own peculiar way. Happy New Virtual Year!
