Description:
As is clear from even a casual understanding of cultural and creative practices in the last decades, the issue of technology has generated responses ranging from desperation to euphoria. Little has been published considering the tension between what seems to be emerging as a form of cataclysmic millennial utopianism and a reactionary anxiety about the disruptions of technoculture. In an era in which the inversions of artistic and corporate intention further blur the already hazy concept of the "avant-garde", it comes as little surprise that politics, spectacle, technology, revolution, violence and Luddism meet in a perverse ecological logic.
