In contrast to the notion of the world and our knowledge being at some point complete, physicist David Bohm (1980) posited that the world is full of movement and becoming, in which any thing, caught at a particular moment, enfolds within its own constitution -- the history of relations that brought it here. This is an intriguing position and one that in spirit captures the inherent limitations of a singularly defined experience. Leaving aside the quagmire of problematic language and terminology when exploring digital media, this paper aims to open up a discussion around the contemporary cultural context in which users find themselves. In specific to explore what potential being in flux offers interaction design.
