Present.Perfect

In China several of people live-stream their own everyday lives on a well-known internet platform. Some of them have hundreds and thousands of followers who observe their doings on a daily basis. At times their followers ask them questions, request them to do certain things or simply give them small virtual rewards which can be exchanged for real money. The live-streamers are often people who feel socially excluded because of their physique, their job or their mental condition; the kind of people who, years ago, would have lead a marginalised life. Now digital platforms have enabled a much more complex situation: they can be a showcase for freaks, or they can be a place of freedom, where anybody, no matter their situation or condition, can express themselves and find their own communities.
