It is my one and a half year in this city. Quite naturally I met with people from different ways of life and backgrounds within this relatively short time span; I attended live concerts, festivals, film screenings, theatre and dance performances, public happenings etc. However, I think my perception is still unblemished in terms of prejudices toward the cultural scene in Ljubljana. In general, I think it is getting harder and harder to focus our attention on a single thing, but rather we get washed under unfiltered information from many directions, for the benefit of few. Being a multitasker in any occupation was a thing that has been practiced by less people then now. The roles were more precise for us to function within the modern society. Harnessing the attention has always been a part of human society and it is closely related with many kinds of economies, whether it is financial, affective, or political. In the meantime – as a recent additional actor – digital algorithms (which are owned by some elites and non-human corporate bodies) run and sustain a boring dystopia nowadays. Moreover, excessive use of media devices may be causing digital and chemical addictions and hormonal rushes to survive this condition.
