HYPNAGOGIC POP DAVID KEENAN PDF

Is it a compulsive human function to make order out of chaos? I have found myself creating a pattern. The object manipulations and collages of Alex Vivian also seemed to fit, as did the explosive colour-drenched, s-referenced work of the Paper Rad -collective. There was something about the creative method as well — a kind of looseness. Everything seemed to be Outsider Art in some way, even the things that are not, but most vital was the sense of wonder and dreamed reality exploding into an awake world.

Many Timothy Learys The resonances are more than aesthetic, though. Life Temples? As we plug into this, our sense of self is lost, and all kinds of wondrous new horizons open up. Here, it is suggested, we can imagine a radical politics which is not constructed on an essential view of the human. Cases of postmodern schizophrenia and multiple electronic identity are common. A character might upload a simulation model of her mind to the net; it is not unheard of for the network itself to attain consciousness.

Rather we must embrace the logic of simulation- use the power of The Matrix to construct new ways of living, new forms of consciousness. It is a utopian becoming one of wo man, nature and technology: Cyborg unities are monstrous and illegitimate; in our present political circumstances, we could hardly hope for more potent myths for resistance and recoupling. I like to imagine LAG, the Livermore Action Group, as a kind of cyborg society, dedicated to realistically converting the laboratories that most fiercely embody and spew out the tools of technological apocalypse, and committed to building a political form that actually manages to hold together witches, engineers, elders, perverts, Christians, mothers, and Leninists long enough to disarm the state.

Fission Impossible is the name of the affinity group in my town. This is the visual translation of my own life…technologies, computers as part of my being. On this reading the liminal zone is a collective nightmare blinding us to exploitative reality. These people are the soundtrack to the end of history. Repetition without difference.

In its world, the virtual hides the real: it is not one with the real. This is the warning Mark Fisher makes. Cyberspace can be counterproductive for politicization and radical politics; it leads to individualisation not networkisation and can help prop up the system it was supposed to herald the end of. Or we may become one with our computers, but only because they come to completely dominate us. How about this for some proto-hypnagogia?

And in the Preface to the Second Edition of T. I envisioned the NEt as an adjunct to the T. The Web has become a perfect mirror of Global Capital: borderless, triumphalist, evanescent, aesthetically bankrupt, monocultural, violent- a force for atomization and isolation, for the disappearance of knowledge, of sexuality, and of all the senses.

A hypnagogic pop gig, perhaps, with the bass pulsing through our inners; a shared community high on ecstasy or company or dancing; a space in which utopian social relations can be prefigured. This spatial utopia might, perhaps, be found on the islands of Islands in the Net which are, after all, physical space- even if they have a cyberspatial function too.

Make it real, people. Make it real. Afterthoughts, get out clauses and P. The spectre of Ballard is hovering around many of these themes. Lewis Call upholds file sharing as a utopian social arrangement. Maybe if I understood what it was all about I could have worked it in. Drugs drugs drugs.

Gibson and Sterling are both regulars in Wired Magazine: the ultimate celebrant of neoliberal cyberspace. The singularity. And hey, it has some synth music of its own! But let me have my fun, eh? Let me bugger these songs; let me force a meaning out somehow… 6. Wikileaks might be interesting to consider in all of this. As might the identity politics. Cyberpunk is often criticised for being the product of privileged young white men, and, well — hai Julian Assange.
