<nettime> disapparatus




disapparatus

julu twine dancing, approaching the disappeared alan dojoji,
whose outfit is permanently destroyed; transformed into clay model,
s/he is nothing, nothing,
s/he is doing nothing wrong either is hir,
think of virtual(virtual): as in stochastic negation, there's no
  return to the real,
there are splits - i'd say natural kinds (of splits) between virtual
  and virtual(virtual) that lie, inhere within, the phenomenology of
  perception,
it's not just that alan dojoji has undergone a transformation - but
  that alan dojoji has undergone a _fundamental_ transformation,
this is all the difference/differance in the world (worlds),
human/avatar interaction is transformed, avatar/avatar interaction
  is transformed - think of the inert or lozenge defined by movement-
  translation alone, as if the body were encased, silenced, transformed,
one might chalk(line) this up to error on the part of second life
  software, but it is _all_ error, all displacement, correction-
  regulation, occupying and suturing _lag_ - and in this case, leg is
  permanent, continuous, remolding and reshouldering the avatar body,
the absent body of alan dojoji (and others, ourselves, as well),
