Hi Annie

My book ‘The Word Machine’ will be published by Penstemon Press soon I  will 
let You know when
I am a fan of your work – great performance art
I’m sorry to hear you had mental health issues too
this is absolutely the issue with body/computer problematics
how does this affect your working practice would you say?

best
Sarah

Hello Sarah,


Could you please tell me where I can find your book. (I don't know if you 
know me, but I am a French (net) artist and I did spend 6 weeks in a 
psychiatric hospital in 1999 - so I also have a special relationship with 
body computer problematics)


Best

Annie

  Hi GH

  I am very sorry if I upset the fragile eco-system of the
  net art world years ago, with a page that I thought
  would only contribute rather than damage. I have
  been very sad to see Rhizome go downhill over that
  time, and I hope it will initiate Raw again as they seem
  to be thinking of doing soon. I loved Rhizome.

  I can only say I was a carer  at the time,and had
  1 x depressed
  1 x heart condition
  1 x carer needing support
  + I had been made redundant again
  this is no excuse though. Then I went mad
  I have written a book about it (my experience of madness)

  I now work in mental health. Perhaps this explains my concerns
  over programming and personal boundaries, and clear
  understanding of the difference between the symbolic and the real.


  >I think that humanity is on a path towards becoming hybrid bio-machines

  this would surely mean an incorporation of the machine into the body
  which has all sorts of implications for how we feel about the body
  both personally and politically.  This is obviously of great concern to 
artists
  all over the world. But what about the psychological implications
  of what’s me and not me? What is your object with live-coding?
  To find a sense of those new configurations?

  Hi Sarah & List,

  OK. You can say that any technology causes a type of  numbing 
disassociation within the person.  Maybe what you’re talking about with 
young people
  is the disassociation that comes with social media.  You have to harm 
yourself in order to feel anything.  And yes, a bunch of people sitting 
around in a circle
  quietly writing code is different from talking to one another of singing 
or dancing etc..  So maybe we are harming ourselves by engaging in these 
types of live coding endeavors.
  I like to use digital tools to reveal and enhance our humanity.  However 
it does cut down on much of my social and physical activities.
  Unfortunately I think that humanity is on a path towards becoming hybrid 
bio-machines.
