Chronotectonics, Alien Processes: Reproduction and Time, 2020 

Lecture and associated essay presented at the Alien Processes: Reproduction and Time conference in New York. Hosted by the New Centre of Research & Pracice, the Centre for Transformative Media, and the New School. Program notes:

“The intensifying intimacy between humans and technology generates “de-naturalized” relations of body, cognition and time. This bodily experience of alienation is not solely technological, but also social. While we can try to escape denaturalization and alienation, we can also consider them as autonomous processes of production and reproduction.

“Today, predictive processing determines how control is produced and reproduced technically, whether in drone warfare, high-speed trading, computerized borders, or facial recognition technologies. As attention-management, statistical parameters and machine learning emerge as nonlinear instruments, biology is no longer describable under the strict terms of biopower.”
