MIXED REALITIES: ELLE MEHMAND AND MICHA CARDENAS
New in the Pharmakon Library [proximity of poison to cure]
Micha and Elle write: "Biometric technology can be seen as a post-contemporary pharmakon, seeming to decentralize knowledge of the body, but quantifying and shaping the form of that knowledge, presupposing its usages and facilitating surveillance. We acknowledge the problematics of the economies which bring us these devices while embracing our potential to open our bodies up to new hybrid experiences of flesh and electricity."
