Diam, Aku Masih Menghidupi Mimpi Industrial-Cyberpunk-ku!

Sudirman, Februari 2021 Gadget, Penyakit Mungkin bukan rahasia bagi sebagian orang, aku adalah orang yang mudah memalingkan kepala apabila ada orang yang berbicara tentang "hardware". Rela menyisihkan sedikit demi sedikit hanya untuk merasakan sensasi mesin dingin dan case kaku nan kokoh. Ya, ya, kamu bisa memberikan cap "orang yang melanggengkan ekonomi libidinal" padaku, mana ku … Continue reading Diam, Aku Masih Menghidupi Mimpi Industrial-Cyberpunk-ku!

Kematian teman lamaku

Dalam beberapa waktu belakangan, aku jadi sering pergi ke daerah Jawa Barat. Ada beberapa orang yang harus kuucapkan "terima kasih" untuk ini. Makasih AAA, makasih Bel, makasih XXX! Terima kasih, karena kalian adalah orang-orang yang mampu membuatku kembali kuat untuk memijakkan kaki di dunia yang seharusnya bisa dinikmati dengan donat kentang, renyah tawa, dan dinginnya … Continue reading Kematian teman lamaku

The Many-Headed Hydra

I am currently re-reading The Many-Headed Hydra by Peter Linebaugh and Marcus Rediker and thought I would add part of chapter six to the library, in it the authors describe the New York Conspiracy of 1741; a failed revolt by the multi-racial criminal underclass of New York city. You can read it here.

There is no specific reason for posting this now, I just thought more people should read it.

Shooting Diary

Invisible Mirrors

The Entrance to the Oloffson Hotel

I’ve decided to keep a shooting diary for the Tap-tap Painters Project I’m working on while here in Port-au-Prince. This will not be a well-formulated and carefully considered thing but something I’ll be doing first thing each morning, head and energy willing. It may not have anything to do with the painting either. Let’s see.

Comfort Inn, JFK – 10th Dec 2011

I awake from a dream after having met the first delegation from the Ghetto Biennale on a house-boat I was living on precariously with my flatmate Kelda.

Leah introduced the group. We began to talk about what we were thinking of doing for the Biennale. The conversation moved along associational relationships between ideas and words. One such association – I think it was ‘mint’ – led to my proposing to do some research about the Haitian central bank and the minting…

Black Note

I went to a psychiatrist and psychologists a while back I told them why I become like this I was r..r..... I couldn't even say the word properly, it was so heavy, very heavy. She understood, she saw through me, she understood, her gaze pierced and spread warmth. "I understand, dear"

Names and Locations of the Top 100 People Killing the Planet

The Decolonial Atlas

Names and Locations Names and Location of the Top 100 People Killing the Planet, 2019 – by Jordan Engel

“The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.” – Utah Phillips

Just 100 companies are responsible for more than 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions since 1988. The guys who run those companies – and they are mostly guys – have gotten rich on the backs of literally all life on Earth. Their business model relies on the destruction of the only home humanity has ever known. Meanwhile, we misdirect our outrage at our neighbors, friends, and family for using plastic straws or not recycling. If there is anyone who deserves the outrage of all 7.5 billion of us, it’s these 100 people right here. Combined, they control the majority of the world’s mineral rights – the “right” to exploit the remaining…

Libidinal Materialism: Nick Land’s Philosophy of Desire

Dr. Rinaldi's Horror Cabinet

“Libidinal materialism, or the theory of unconditional (non-teleological) desire, is nothing but a scorch-mark from the expository diagnosis of the physicalist prejudice.”

– Nick Land, The Thirst for Annihilation

To be rid of the theological underpinnings of a naturalism that subverts the physicalist project into dogmatism is at the core of the sun ridden theory of Nick Land’s libidinal materialism. Old school Naturalism is usually defined most briefly as the philosophical conclusion that the only reality is nature, as gradually discovered by our intelligence using the tools of experience, reason, and science. The basic premise for this older narrative within the prejudice of the sciences is that philosophical naturalism undertakes the responsibility for elaborating a comprehensive and coherent worldview based on experience, reason, and science, and for defending science’s exclusive right to explore and theorize about all of reality, without any interference from tradition, superstition, mysticism, religious dogmatism, or priestly authority.
