The Unary Substance Of The Deep Cyborg

single chanel video, 5:24 min.

An audiovisual essay and a water sculpture that articulate materialist perspective of gender’s genome in the planetary ecology. Inspired by the ideas of the ancient greek philosopher Thales of Miletus, cyber and hydra feminism, aesthetics of AI-art and feministic rap rhythms, the project unfolds cyborg relationships between earth and human via watery phenomena and poetizes fluidity of (gender) identities across manifold bodies.
The visuals were generated based on the essay text with some additional adjustments for the algorithm’s prompts that in its turn became later a part of the essay creating a feedback loop between text and imagery.
