Ancient Waymaker: An Oral Ruttier
This video performance lecture is rooted in the ancient mariner tradition of using oral poetry as a navigational guide. Here deconstructed and reinterpreted for voyage on land and cognitive landscapes via visuals, text and sound. This transcends temporal boundaries and journeys an archeological landscape.
The threads of an imagined/artificial consciousness emerges as an anthro-posthuman leitmotif,and invites introspection on the evolving relationship between humankind and technology; implications of technological interventions on human cognition, identity, and emotive dispositions. It reflects on the coalescence of human awakening/ingenuity with the technoscape of the present, future and past.
