|About the TRANSMIGRATION OF THE TELEPRESENT:
XLTerrestrials (XLT) present The Transmigration Of The Telepresent, the 2nd installment of their unlicensed psychomedia analysis and interactive film program, a deconstructive art, social praxis, and tactical media forum which began with The Transmigration Of Cinema in 2005 to analyze and affect the new mass media landscape and what we call "virtual migration.
Today we are enraptured by a (primarily) military, corporate and venture capital invention, a digital network unleashed for civilian use at the end of the 80s. Www, the wonderous new technopoly that also brings good things to life (an old slogan of General Electric, a military contractor and TV broadcast conglomerate). Now at arts+tech exhibitions around the world there is quite a buzz about a telematicly-engaged society, much more so than even those Disneyesque Tomorrowland shows of yesteryear which hyped rocket ships and connections to life and planets beyond.
Is civilian technology now the dominant paradigm or is a gullible species being taken on another ride ?!
Dr. Podinsky and an XLT reconnaissance team will perform a magickal + cinematic vivisection of our increasingly disembodied user-culture. © Pod p Podinski
