ENGINEERED INTELLIGENCES WILL BE BIOTECHNOLOGICAL. WE’LL

START TO SEE THESE INTELLIGENCES AS PROGRAMMED ORGANISMS,

NOT HARDWARE.

I AM WORKING ON A SERIES OF MATERIAL ARTEFACTS EXCAVATED

FROM A FICTIONAL, POST-TECHNOCENE, ARCHEOLOGICAL DIG…MANY

MILLENNIA FROM NOW.

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE UNEXPECTED TEXTURES AND

TECHNOFOSSILS UNVEIL - THE PRODUCTS OF OUR OWN TECHNOLOGY

FEEL LIKE ALIENS ON OUR OWN EARTH. THE FRAGMENTS DEFINITELY

MAYBE RESEMBLE SOMETHING BIOLOGICAL, OR GEOLOGICAL, OR IS

IT DIGITAL?

COUPLED WITH PLASTIGLOMERATE BEDFELLOWS, A RADIOACTIVE

PULSE AND COPPER CULTURE ECHOES, THE RESULTING FRAGMENTS

(?)/SPECIMENS(?) REVEAL THE FAMILIAR YET AMBIGUOUS TACTILITIES

OF A 21ST CENTURY++ MATERIAL PLANET. MICRO-LANDSCAPES

TRIGGERED BY THE HAND OF WO/MAN, COMPRESSED AND CREATED

BY THE FORCES OF UN/NATURE.

DECORATIVELY GROTESQUE FOLDS OF BIO TISSUE, PETRIFIED GELS,

PIRATED CHLOROPHYLL, PLASTIC-GORGING BIOBOTERIA - THESE

CONVERSATION OBJECTS FORM WORLDS-WITHIN-WORLDS.

THESE STUDIES FORM PART OF MUTO-GEO-NESIS, A SPECULATIVE

RESEARCH INQUIRY INTO THE MATERIAL GEOCONSEQUENCES OF

HUMAN UN/NATURE/S.
