Under liquid modernity, the realities we promote in leisure, tourism, the arts and the media tend to be rather less fixed and inherited and rather more ‘willed’, for – as Deleuze and Guattari (1977, p. 42) have recognized – ‘We no longer believe in a primordial totality that once existed, or in a final totality that awaits us at some future date’.
