About “GHOST IN THE MACHINE”
When Ryle described Descartes’ mind/body philosophy as a “Ghost in the Machine” it was almost a premonition of the future in the 21st century. The concept that spirit and body were separate or that mind & soul could exist separately from one’s physicality has been widely considered and discussed for centuries. In this new age of technology the examination of the philosophy of mind/body dualism takes on entire new dimensions.
Hackers, Makers, Builders, Programmers, Producers and a thousand other creative designations are this era’s contribution to artisanship, intellectual development and trade mastery. As we step into an era of immersive worlds & augmented realities, our creatorship becomes a fluid entity and the tangible embodiment of the intangible soul.
Intelligence ~ artificial & organic…
The difference isn’t always so clear.
These artists explore mind / body duality through mechanical and organic perspective and their practice manifests through the lens of technology, video and new media in this Fall group exhibition at Work | Release curated by Charles Rasputin.
