Yeah, Photographer Hal’s zeitgeist-ly shrinkwrapped couples have been hitting the web and sucking in our eyes for about a year… ok, so we’re a little late to recognize its scalpel-like social commentary… … but wait til you see where we’re going with this…

So we’ve been trying to assess the other nite at Supermarkt w/ Trebor Scholz’s presenting his work and analysis on Digital Labor

And to be honest, we never really wanted to get too close to the issues of Labor and Economy. Life and Art were elsewhere ! It’s only in the last few years, we see its relevance at the core of creating autonomy, liberation and a green, inhabitable planet, that is, a space to live art. In the modern world, perhaps it always has been, at the core of art survival and community life. Our axes shifted at this moment where The Whole is on the verge of collapse, and we no longer see the ‘escape arts’ as socially viable. In its most extreme form, the human escapades to triumph individually and outside the box, outside the circle, has made the planet the ego-fest warfield and neo-con trash heap that it is today.

Are we being devoured by the ultimate
life + labor capturing device ever invented ??!… Julian Assange calls it the
greatest spying machine ever invented, but the only reason The Net
has amassed such power ( over our lives ) is because it has tapped into our
desires to connect, and transformed them into the ultimate product, the ultimate marketplace.

Is Net Time the reduction of organisms and cognitive functions into the quantifiable absolute? Into the mathematical , mechanical and managerial butcher shop  ?!

Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here! … but wait, there is a way out !
