myphotoalbum Cyborg Identity: The Role of the Trickster in a Postmodern World New form of self-location listen understand "creating a shared understanding
larger than yourself" (Thompson) “[T]he social relations of production have a social existence to the extent that they have a spatial existence; they project themselves into a space, becoming inscribed there, and in the process producing that space itself” (Lefebvre) “Spaces are strange: homogeneous, rationalized, and as such constraining; yet at the same time utterly dislocated. Formal boundaries are gone between town and country, between centre and periphery, between suburbs and city centers” (Lefebvre) "All surface, electonric space cannot be inhabited by any body that is not also an electronic body" (Sobchak) I attempt to imagine some place in the world which has never been seen, the very fact that I imagine it makes me present at that place. I thus cannot conceive a perceptible place in which I am not myself present" (Merleau-Ponty) Social Proprioception "Each technology not only differently mediates our figurations of bodily existence but also constitutes them. That is, each offers our lived bodies radically different ways of ‘being in the world’” (Sobchack) “A buddy list isn’t just a vehicle to chat with friends but a way to sense their presence” (Thompson) "Social Sixth Sense" "While electronic discourse explodes the belief in a stable unified self, it offers a means of exploring how identity is multiply constructed and how agency resides in the power of connecting with others and building alliances” (Faigley) “The machine is us, our processes, an aspect of our embodiment. We can be responsible for machines; they do not dominate or threaten us. We are responsible for boundaries; we are they…. Taking responsibility for the social relations of science and technology means… embracing the skillful task of reconstructing the boundaries of daily life, in partial connection with others, in communication with all of our parts” (38-39). The Cyborg Trickster Powers are "'derived from his ability to
live interstitially [in the cracks, betwixt
and between, marginally], to confuse
and to escape the structures of society
and the order of cultural things'"
(Franchot Ballinger)
