Algorithm of grief

K’ima, a long retired storyweaver, finds herself gripped by a sense of having forgotten something one day. She becomes fixated and starts to investigate Life Lines and ads, social networks which once held so much power but have now become allies to the community’s digital health and wellbeing. It is in this search that she rediscovers those parts of herself she thought she had lost.
