‘An invisible network’

The package reached the target. The shot was inoculated and the implant attached. In response, at the Department for Peripheral Communications, we received another packet.

The note enclosed reads… “A grip, a bond to all the other persons I offered one.” And at the bottom, “Grip, creation of an invisible network.” I looked at the bizarre object with perplexity… An invisible network, how could that be so close to what our lab had planned for the next experiment? So close to us and so different at the same time. A totally different beauty, from a different periphery, it could not come from the centre.

An invisible network… And here we laid a new connection between nodes. A channel has been opened that connects our peripheries. Look at this empty syringe! Mutation must be completed by now.

And back to the invisible network. At our lab we are currently working on better versions of the implants. We actually want to create a networked body whose organs get excited when exposed to sunlight. Look at this very rudimentary model here. Imagine that it is a device that when exposed sends messages to all the other devices in the network…

    your lovely post left me wondering about the idea of a node. a fundamental development in the theory of comprehension, archiving, orientation; all together a very practical tool for visualisation and for some time remained in continual recontextualisation.
    what has become of the node in the dawn of the 2.0 ? has the node become inverted ? what has our point of correlation become now that composite parts should be best out-referenced to static (at least with regards to functionality) and complete points of reference. our fantoms anchored and inverted ? has the moving presence become a black hole amidst the terrain ? as before one is able to exist upon many planes, is the 2.0 a prison from which one may look out from many windows upon different terrains. it’s much more practical not to have many homes, but is it really as nice ?

Her research project looks into assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits, computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the undercurrents of body communication.
