” Cyberspace, not so long ago, was a specific elsewhere, one we visited periodically, peering into it from the familiar physical world. Now cyberspace has everted. Turned itself inside out. Colonized the physical. Making Google a central and evolving structural unit not only of the architecture of cyberspace, but of the world. This is the sort of thing that empires and nation-states did, before. But empires and nation-states weren’t organs of global human perception. They had their many eyes, certainly, but they didn’t constitute a single multiplex eye for the entire human species.” W. Gibson in the NYTimes. ” ( via Owni article on the metaverse )
For a long time, Gibson has been unable to propose any oppositional sci-fi vision, he’s just been along for the colonial rides, and perhaps merely eeking out a pop-consultant career for corporate-ruled dystopianisms. XLterrestrials will investigate what it would mean to, in the words of Brian Holmes, “Escape The Overcode” ! Or… to detourn the multiplex !

CiTiZEN KiNO is a LIVE mix of Theater, Film and The Net which sets the stage for you to take over the controls in the media sanitorium ! Dr. Podinski, an anarcho-projectionist and psychomedia syndicalist from the XLterrestrials laboratories, slices open a gaping hole in the screen for entering or exiting, as you wish! Tonight’s program “Electric Sheep Revisited” begins with a virtual autopsy of Ridley Scott Inc., your own Replicant Memories, the festering Hollywood Operating System … and this year’s Berlinale Festival.
“In these times of an over-mediated and deep-fried society, it is no longer possible to cut through the fog of the information war. It is far too late to pull the child out of a circus lion’s flatscreen jaws. Only as a fully unlicensed brain-clown-surgeon w/ an exploding surrealist brush can one again become a true Actor in the epic present ! ” XLt Inc.
