technologies of the self with Eugenie Shinkle

great to be back for year 2

the moon only became far away with the invention of the telescope
the virtual eye looking into a virtual space with the body abandoned
I see therefore I am

“The photograph reduplicates the world and in time even comes to displace it, taking on the character of what is true and what is real. Seeing is believing, we say, a maxim which was unimaginable prior to the invention of linear perspective vision. And with the camera we have further qualified this vision: not any seeing is believing, but only that seeing which duplicates the neutrality and impartiality of the camera eye.” Romanyshyn63
