A type of reward-based learning, the dopamine economy has always existed, in this instance, the feedback loop is altered. Because of its affect on us from a neurological level, it has changed our ability to deduce on what’s true. Also called the attention economy, this new kind of addiction means spending increasing amount of time online to produce the same pleasurable effect.
The 2020 Election is in the near future, but as we learned in the 2016 election, anything can happen within a short time. Reporting, social media, political pundits, conspiracy theories, polling, accusations, and investigations — how we get information and the validity of truth will sway views and ultimately, votes. The best political minds did not see the massive shift in support until it was too late. This epic upset was an eye-opener for the entire country.

In this wide-ranging essay, Bernardi explores personal and artistic responses to state violence. Marking the limits of memory in witnessing the past, she argues for a complex understanding of memory as a mode of reclaiming the disappeared, as the foundation for consciousness building, and, when transmuted into material forms, as a means of witnessing. Bernardi conceptualizes artistic creation as fulfilling multiple roles in witnessing, and as an exchange that demands both speech and recognition. An artistic response to atrocity, she writes, demonstrates an important form of listening to testimonials of atrocity; in turn, that demonstration invites both members and observers into rituals of commemoration. Such rituals, she argues, can provide the foundation for rebuilding trust and understanding in communities that have been damaged by state violence.
