A serendipitous screenshot capturing the tragicomic travesties of ad-supported media, viscerally contrasting the human spirit at its most triumphant and at its most trivial: On the left, the remarkable Diana Nyad, flexing her jellyfish-stung arm as she takes pride in a record-breaking endurance swim; on the right, a model flexing her art-directed ability to take pride in Louis Vuitton.
The machine speaks everywhere.
