Curated Screening by Jameson Wallace, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
At the moment of separation of the body from the brain, our ability to differentiate thought from prosthetic breaks down. Our body extends as far as our effect, far beyond our ability to see it happen. Both the threat and promise of virtualization is that its nature will have a form of dance more appropriate to us than what we now call "human."
