Eternalist Necropolitics


Life as concept, undying, politics as a Lucian discussion among the immortal dead. Dying isn't really an option and persistence is the political mode of preservation. If our knowledge is one leading to a technical world, it is a world that has no life cycle, it accumulates and saturates, transforms from useful gadget to useless trash. Manufactured obsolescence is a mode of respiration, how blood is pumped into the silicon veins of stored memory. Dancing, some screeching, some shapes that look a little recognizable, all viewed through liquid crystal display.
