“Instruments of Service” is a class of legally protected work products defined in the American Institute of Architects’ “A201-2007 General Conditions” as “representations, in any medium of expression now known or later developed, of the tangible and intangible creative work performed by the Architect.” In practice, instruments are any drawing, model, calculation or specification created for a client, copyrighted by the architect as a design “recommendation” and trafficked between intellectual, digital and real property. As research, everyday and experimental instruments are assemblages of tools and materials, allography and autography that move from Skype to ‘the street’ through theaters of peer ...

There is no doubt that we live in exciting times: Ours is the age of many ‘silent revolutions’ triggered by startups and research labs of big IT companies; revolutions that quietly and profoundly alter the world we live in. Another ten or five years, and self-tracking will be as normal and inevitable as having a Facebook account or a mobile phone. Our bodies, hooked to wearable devices sitting directly at or beneath the skin, will constantly transmit data to the big aggregation in the cloud. Permanent recording and automatic sharing will provide unabridged memory, both shareable and analyzable. The digitization ...

PublisherThe Funambulist2014
This conversation is the first one I recorded for Archipelago (hence the not-so-great quality of the sound, sorry!). In the first part of the discussion, Sarah and I attempt to introduce the philosophy of Gilbert Simondon through his concepts of individuation, allagmatic, milieu, the body as “always more than one.” His work is important to us as Sarah explains because it went from a metaphysics of “being” to one of “becoming,” allowing things not to have an essence, but rather to be involved in the process of their individuation. In the second part of the conversation, I ask questions to Sarah ...

PublisherNew Models2022
Trained in the twilight of legacy media and skilled in the dark arts of the extremely online, BEN DITTO bridges communication systems and cultural logics of the 90s-00s-10s and 20s. In advance of launching his new channel, Ditto Nation, the London-based creative-director/artist/cultural-analyst speaks to NM about the physical limits of the self and the technology that defines it, platform death-tripping, ML trend consulting, and the new magick of natural language spellcasting.

PublisherMeson Press2015
The philosophy of Gilbert Simondon has reinvigorated contemporary thinking about biological and technological beings. In this book, Jean-Hugues Barthélémy takes up Simondon’s thought and shows how life and technology are connected by a transversal theme: individuation. In the first essay, Barthélémy delivers a contemporary interpretation of Simondon’s concept of ontogenesis against the backdrop of biology and cybernetics. In the second essay, he extends his reflections to propose a non-anthropological understanding of technology, and so sets up a confrontation with the work of Martin Heidegger.

Growing numbers of nonhuman companions (smart objects, technical environments, sensor technologies used to augment the human body) are creating affective synching between human and nonhuman agency. Unlike the unconscious of psychoanalysis, this book argues, the resulting nonconscious is no longer coupled to a subject grounded in language, instead acting as an affective link between technical, mental, and physical processes. But how is this nonconscious to be understood? Is it something additional, a new zone intervening between the unconscious and consciousness? Or does it fundamentally call into question the distinction between the two?

PublisherOpen File2013
Three separate publications linked in format and style, for three events around the UK. Taking on themes of digital distribtion and virtual cultures, the third series of Open File events took place in three venues across the UK: Grand Union, Birmingham, ICA, London and Spike Island, Bristol. Hashfail was the first in a series of three nationwide events investigating the distribution and production of art via virtual and digital platforms through sound, performance and digital media. Hashfail coincided with (On) Accordance, a project by or-bits.com and Grand Union. A Hashfail occurs when ‘seeded’ files have become corrupt and therefore certain ‘bits’ of data cannot be received. ...
