Transcript of Pinup 4

Nietzsche (from Weber)
Birth of Tragedy

“This process of the tragic chorus is the ordinary dramatic phenomenon : seeing oneself altered before one’s very eyes and now acting as though one has really entered into another body, another character… Here already the individual gives itself up by entering into an alien nature.” Benoit Mendelbrot
The (Mis)Behavior of Markets “Research over the past few decades, by me and then by others, shows that many financial prices series have a ‘memory’ of sorts. Today does in fact, influence tomorrow.” “In the newspaper, all price charts look alike, Sure, some go up; some down. But daily, monthly annually – there is no big difference in the overall look of it. Strip off the dates and price markers, and you could not tell which was which. They were all equally wiggly. “Wiggly” is hardly a scientific term – and until I developed fractal geometry years later, there was no good way to quantify so vague a notion as wiggle. But that is exactly what we can new see in the cotton data : a fractal pattern.” “Lastly, the cotton story shows the strange liaison among different branches of the economy, and between economics and nature. That cotton prices should vary the way income does; that income variation should look like Swedish fire-insurance claims; that these, in turn are the same mathematical family as formulae describing the way we speak, or how earthquakes happen – this is, truly the greatest mystery of all.” Emmanuel Kant
Of The Mathematically Sublime “The feeling of the sublime is therefore a feeling of pain arising for the want of accordance between the aesthetical estimation of magnitude formed by the imagination and the estimation of the same formed by reason.” Michel de Certeau
The Practice of Everyday Life “This ‘space’ of a moving nowhere has the subtlety of a cybernetic world. It probably constitutes the indicative than explanatory, referring to what we do not know their model of the art of operating or of that metis which in seizing occasions constantly restores the unexpected pertinence of time in places where powers are distributed.” “Memory comes from somewhere else, it is outside of itself, it moves things about.” “The ruling order serves as a support for innumerable productive activities while at the same time blinding its proprietors to this creativity (like those “bosses” who simply can’t see what is being created within their own enterprises).” “We must first analyze its (representation’s) manipulation by users who are not is makers. Only then can we gage the difference or similarity between the production of the image and the secondary production hidden in the process of its utilization.” “Since the world system of late capitalism (or post modernity) is however inconceivable without the computerized media technology which eclipses its former spaces and faxes and unheard-of simultaneity across its branches, information technology will become virtually the representational solution as well as the representational problem of this world system’s cognitive mapping, whose allegories can now always be expected include a communicational third term.” Fredric Jameson
The Geopolitical Aesthetic “we shall, or should, ultimately reach a sign of itself, containing its own explanation and those of all its significant parts and according to this explanation each such part has some other part as its Object.” Charles Peirce
A Sign of Itself “Goods and shop windows, traffic and advertisements, stores and the world of communications, new and packaging, architecture and media production come together to form a totality, a permanent theatre, which dominate not only the public city centers but also private interiors. This expression beautiful living make the most commodities triumphs completely over their use value.” Hans Enzenzberger (on Lefebvre) Constituents of a Theory of the Media Cutting, dubbing, these are techniques for conscious manipulation without which the use of the new media is inconceivable. It is precisely in these work presses that their productive power reveals itself and here it is completely immaterial whether one is dealing with the production of a reportage or a play. The material, whether “documentary” or “fiction” is in each case only a prototype, a half-finished article, and the more closely one examines its origins, the more blurred the difference becomes.” “Nothing can be further from the spirit of the new technology than a place for everything and everything in its place.” Samuel Weber
The Question of Digital Democracy Marshall McLuhan
No Sense of Place "...there can be no movement of delocalization with an accompanying relocation..." "The individual thus altered is both here and there, and yet neither simply here or there, simply itself or simply other. It is the movement of a certain errancy and oscillation, and it is this that make it something like the ghost of itself, lacking and authentic place or proper body." ALLEGORY AS REPRESENTATION
