Technobodies

I read so much theory and sometimes I just become completely overwhelmed by it. There are some sentences that are just so perfect and so beautifully written that I wish I could have them tattooed to me and could read them forever. Where do I write all these amazing things?

Some, I can write here:

Postmodern nostalgia of spaces: ‘the impossible nostalgia of postmodern attempts to retrieve fullness of being by retrospective memory…the nostalgia for a moment that points forward to an event that never happened.’ (Vidler, The Architectural Uncanny)

And:

The cyborg is resolutely committed to partiality, irony, intimacy, and perversity. It is oppositional, utopian, and completel without innocence. No longer structured by the polarity of public and private, the cyborg defined a technological polis based parly on a revolution of social relations in the oikos, the household. Nature and culture are reworked; the one can no longer be the resource for appropriation or incorporation by the other’ (Haraway, A Manifesto For Cyborgs)

About cinemelo

I love to write about film and comment on culture. Hopefully providing insight and interesting thoughts for fellow cultural itinerants.
