THE TELEMATIC ART - THE ART OF PERCEPTION
2005 - THE YEAR OF THE FIVE IN ARTPOOL
... we should depart from the principle that we are modes of junctions, rather than individuals. In other words, “I” is a word that others pronounce as “you”. Thus, we are dealing with a function word:
“I” is the “you” of the other person. Or: in defining my own identity, first of all I must distinguish myself. Parity and disparity are interdependent notions.
The same can be found in psychoanalysis, neurophysiology and neuropsychology.
These all point to the same direction. At the heart of telematics is a type of anthropology that does not perceive the human person as an individual, but rather as the manner how systems of relations function; as the realization of possible links. The intersubjective field is a virtual space in which an individual is a node in the net, inasmuch as materiality is a node in the energetic space.
