Recreations (2005)

rec•re•a•tion n 1. the refreshment of the mind and body, especially by engaging in enjoyable activities 2. vt- to create something again or reproduce it

What is the difference between learning and being programmed? Between doing and running a program? Between a body and an interface? Between a social organization and a network? How would a programmed child body behave? What sensation would this body without sensations produce? The artificial child could be a plausibility or a sci-fi fantasy. It could also be the poetic body of a post-humanist sentiment- how can we do and only do and not feel any necessity towards consequence? How would the inorganic body not be a limitation or a lament but another curiosity, another field of relations and disconnections..
