This page stores several "visual theories" about telepresence, telerobotics, and the results of a bodyless internet being interfaced with a mindless machine.
Upon entrance into digital space, the individual becomes a disembodied digital mind. Through the interface of tele-operation, this digital mind can be re-constituted into a non- virtual format.
Resulting from the machine's
markmaking device, these
crude scratches illustrate a rough interface between the
disembodied digital self and
the re-constitution of it into
a physical format.
Unlike an attempt to 'seamlessly interface' the disembodied digital self into a physical format, this INTERFACE is intentionally rough.
To attempt to seamlessly interface individuals with technology is to misunderstand the common relationship that most people have to it.
The practice of exploring technologically-mediated experiences seems to be a valid
exercise in a society which is already highly technologically mediated. Telephones, televisions, radios, and the internet form a structural backbone in western society, and by creatively exploring technological-mediation, concepts can be created and contemporary reality can be understood.
