posthumanism

Got these for $16 on Primeday. They're pretty good for the price. There are a temporary solution until I find the a pair of really good, truly wireless earbuds, at a reasonable price.

This week was bipolar junction transistor (BJT) biasing, using a 2N3904 npn silicon transistor. I had to brush up on Thevenin's theorem and KVL loop, for the math, or rather, how to apply it to this type of circuit. Next week will be BJT amplifiers.

Hoy la artista nacional Margarita Gómez @margegomezm, residente en Sinestesia, se presenta en Breslavia, Polonia en la conferencia internacional "10th Beyond Humanism Conference" con su investigación "Expanded Choreography". La conferencia contará con la participación de invitados internacionales, entre los que destacan investigadores de renombre como Bernard Stiegler y Steve Fuller.

Posthumanism focuses on the critique of the humanist ideal of 'Man' as the universal representative of the human, while post-anthropocentrism criticizes species hierarchy and advances bio-centred egalitarianism. . . #wood #philosophy #photography #filozofia #photo #art #posthumanism #braidotti #anthropocene #anthropoceneart #book #bookstagram #bookworm #czytam #science #bookaddict #booklover #bookshelf #czytamy #read #bookish #bookshop #igreads #instabook #książka #książki #czytambolubie #ksiazka #aesthetics #ecology

Today is a very special day. For the first time since my graduation at the School of the Art Institute last year, I get to show my work in Chicago. Not any work and not anywhere. At the Pace of the Rocks is a work I consider to be at the very soul of what I'm doing as an artist, and I am so lucky to be able to show it at an institution like the Zhou B Art Center, @zhoubartcenter as part of the program Vital Signs-Twisted Oyster, curated by Pia Cruzalegui @piacruzaleguiartist In January 2017, I traveled to the desert of Racetrack Playa (Death Valley, California), in order to visit its idiosyncratic geosystem and carry-out At the Pace of the Rocks; a site-specific durational performance in which —by remaining still— I tried to become a rock from sunrise to sunset. Racetrack Playa is widely known for its many iconic rocks —some as big as to weigh 700 pounds—, which move slowly over the surface of a dry lakebed, carving the ground beneath and leaving behind traces of their movement. In September 2016, Racetrack Playa was vandalized and several rocks were stolen or displaced from their original locations. My body occupied the space of a missing rock, making use of its now orphan trace. In the distance, I integrated in appearance with other surrounding stones, and after remaining still for a period of nine hours, my body lost the ability to walk, becoming more rock and less human. From a vital-materialist perspective, Racetrack Playa is a fascinating place. The dolomite rocks move like questioning aliveness, while their mysterious traces reveal the slowness of geological processes and the invisibility of a landscape in continuous transformation. Placing my body within this very specific context not only captures ideas of the human as a geologic entity, but also generates permeable relationships between the body and the environment. In that precise moment where I am perceived as a rock, or in which my entire body is numb and I have lost the ability to move, every material form operates at a same level; everything seems to collapse, becoming entangled, continuous and non-hierarchical. . #msbastida #contemporaryart #environmentalartist #zhoubartcenter

Guess I’ve got some more work to do...here’s the abstract I submitted. * * ​The Black Posthuman Transformer ​This essay introduces the Black posthuman transformer. As a futuristic entity, it is a gender shifting complex autopoietic system of infinitely augmentable capability. In contrast to the cyborg’s physical and existential compartmentalizations, it is the complete merger of the human animal with nature (as machine) at the cellular level, and so gives vitality to: the technology it embodies; the animality in which it is immersed; and the self-determination necessary for its present temporality. The Black posthuman transformer optimally embodies the energy of what I argue is the complexity of complexities, committing its life towards the freedom its existence requires. #afrofuturism #transformer #afrotech #speculativeBlackness #posthumanism #futurestudies

Dinner and a movie roundup: I think I’ve posted individual photos of all these movies but have been rewatching them as preparation for my conference paper (also AI, which I streamed, and Star Trek’s “Requiem for Methuselah” and “What Are Little Girls Made Of?”).
