Non Human

  1. On the Existence of Digital Objects : How can digital objects be understood according to individualization and individuation?  Yuk Hui creates a dialogue between Martin Heidegger and Gilbert Simondon and contextualizes it within the history of computing. Interdisciplinary in philosophical and technical insights, Hui’s work develops an original, productive way of thinking about the data and metadata that increasingly define our world.
  2. The Tears of Things : Melancholy and Physical Objects : Reveals the object as the self’s ultimate other . The Tears of Things looks at literary and cultural attempts to control and possess things—including paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe, sculpture by Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Cornell’s boxes, Edward Gorey’s graphic art, fiction by Virginia Woolf, and the corpse photographs of Joel Peter Witkin. What emerges is not an art that reassembles but one that questions what it means to assemble in the first place.
