daniel-pinheiro:

Distant Feeling(s) is a project which aims at, once a year, bringing together different interested people, joining from their different locations in the world and share ‘15 minutes’ of togetherness across the network. Resorting to the internet as a common communication channel/medium and to video-conferencing software, everyone is invited to join and remain silent and with eyes closed during the duration of the experiment. 

The usual human tools used for communication - sound and vision, commonly applied in video-conferencing - are taken out from the equation while going against everyday (technological) restlessness and enabling other senses to carefully tune into the presence of others. Distant Feeling(s) becomes an intimate portrait of people actively producing a meditative state where the screen becomes a shared and common space for all. A globally dispersed community materializing a relational system, a networked topology that not only represents the network itself, but that discusses the fragile situation of us being together while apart.

daniel-pinheiro:

Networked Topologies (Csenge Kolozsvari and Daniel Pinheiro -  May / Nov 2018) - a participatory action where, by combining remote locations and individuals, it intends to explore the affordances of the networked space across, the topological movement where we register value through and with. 

First developed as part of the Schizo-Somatic Workshop series and activated on May 9th, 2018 at the SenseLab at Concordia University (Montreal, CA) this project aims to explore the affordances of the networked space across and acknowledging the interruption produced by technology connecting the different nodes. This iteration focused on experimenting the collective production of a space across, under the concept of ‘collective dreaming’ suggested by Erin Manning’s propositions for collective fabulations towards social dreaming (here).

The project was shared and activated in the context of Digital Anthropologies #6 (Paris, France).

As an exercise of topological transformation of the space across, this spontaneous transvisual experience, opens doors to discuss a networked movement across within the soft flatness that characterizes the environment where it takes place where the pure flatness of the screen is shown by each person acting within the frame of the webcam and where the constraints imposed by the context render visible the ‘Joy and Sorrow of Unstable Connections’.

The Digital Ruins of a Forgotten FutureSome people call Second Life escapist, and often its...

Some people call Second Life escapist, and often its residents argue against that. But for me, the question isn’t whether or not Second Life involves escape. The more important point is that the impulse to escape our lives is universal, and hardly worth vilifying. Inhabiting any life always involves reckoning with the urge to abandon it—through daydreaming; through storytelling; through the ecstasies of art and music, or hard drugs, or adultery, or a smartphone screen. These forms of “leaving” aren’t the opposite of authentic presence. They are simply one of its symptoms—the way love contains conflict, intimacy contains distance, and faith contains doubt.

Ideology, Intelligence, and Capital with Nick Land

jmrphy:


Nick Land is a British philosopher living in Shanghai. Nick is one of the main figures in the school of thought known as accelerationism. He is currently writing a book about the philosophical implications of Bitcoin. We talked about accelerationism, cybernetics, ideology, the evolution of Nick’s perspective, Deleuze and Guattari, emancipation and dehumanization, artificial intelligence, capitalism, Moldbug, mathematics and the significance of zero, religion, blockchain/Bitcoin, Kantianism, synthetic time, and more.

We recorded this online, over two sessions. We did have some unavoidable connection problems, so you’ll notice some imperfections such as clicking sounds throughout. We did the best we could; big thanks to those who helped with the editing.

A few people are now helping to make a full-text transcript of this conversation, which will be available soon at Vast Abrupt (vastabrupt.com).
