URB 17 - Pakui Hardware: Creatures of Habit at SIC art space

July 21, 2017
Author Echo Gone Wrong

Pakui HardwareImmersed in leisure while automated bodies scurry around carrying out our daily routines and work, we devote ourselves to spiritual and cultural augmentation, cultivation of our creativity and fitness. Everyone is familiar with such kind of phantasy of automation. It is, of course, accessible to only part of the future post-working class. But are we even ready to renounce work, when it has been the driving force and the key indicator of ‘success’ for centuries? There is a joke that there are three things one can watch forever: fire, water, and other people working. Are we prepared to be observers of the hypnotizing choreography of robotic bodies, of the velocity of algorithmic decisions?
