On Carving Your Own Gravestone
Out of Holographic Paper & OHP Pens

something in advertising has buckled
can something in advertising fracture
the gods’word that writes itself on every visible surface,
made its known in a hole-

we couldn’t spit at daffodils
we couldn’t spit at iron
the anchor at the side of the road
and a competitive take-out menu,
not to be confused with menuing.

the conditions always being favourable,
and the particular resolution pre-set
as seamless grouting for the spotter (automated);
the beast-in-repose courts ‘refusal’,
snickers,
and evidenced disarray remains ‘a personal problem’ (persistent),
with no demands heard.

ofc 1 is encouraged to pebbledash in public,
what with the bureauGod-given solutions being crowned The Backbone of Economy, and All,
and given that one can’t not.

it is making use of curiosity-followback, nothing else makes sense. it is possibly the most complex i have seen, the least bot-ish that i’ve been able to identify for relative-certain.

Quote

The logic of post-democracy trends is circular – big business is encouraged to grow, becomes more important to an economy, is incorporated into the structures of governance, has a greater influence in policy-making, which in turn allows it to grow further – but what is more damning is the complete surrender of opposition parties to these mechanisms. Indeed the most successful practitioners of the neoliberal model were the ‘Third Way’ administrations of Tony Blair and Bill Clinton. This is in itself revealing. The ‘move to the centre’, as the enclosure of democratic parameters was referred to, was pursued with relatively minor disturbance through the mid-to-late nineties and on through the first half of the twenty-first century. For all the dwindling voter turnout and periodic anti-globalisation unrest, the model of Anglo-American capitalism appeared to be in rude health, even succeeding in co-opting the progressive currents of theory which had previously been a reliable check on the abuses of power carried out under the banner of orthodoxy.

Of course, this superficial tranquillity and the façade of having conquered ‘boom and bust’ was quite dramatically shown up as being anything but sustainable, as a subprime mortgage crisis in California snowballed into 2007’s Global Financial Crisis. The post-industrial zeitgeist of endlessly shared risk and endlessly accrued profits sank under the cold reality that the American and British banking sectors were bailed out by the state and, lest we forget, the taxpayer. Suddenly swarms of writers were queuing to stick the proverbial knife into the pillars of neoliberal political economy, taking aim at irresponsible bond traders and mortgage lenders. Wall St. and the City were corrupt and above the law, the political class in cahoots with all manner of unsavoury interests. The election of President Obama in 2008 can be viewed in this light. It is ever easier to lament how ‘change’ and ‘hope’ were mere rhetoric, but that would be a disservice to the grassroots mobilisation within ‘ground zero’ of the economic crisis, one which Russell Brand, incidentally, was keen to support. With its credibility strained, the notion of a ‘shelf life’ for political economy ideologies was optimistically brought back to the discussion. As surely as neoliberalism had usurped Keynesianism, many assumed another imminent transformation of capitalism.

These observers had underestimated the pyrrhic success of the past thirty years with regards to the nexus between the state and big business. Now more than half a decade after the Global Financial Crisis, governments across the OECD have grappled with a conundrum largely of their own making. In spite of overwhelming criticism, the political class remained ‘lost in the maze’, not only now relying on MNCs to provide public services and the running of government, but also now quite literally stakeholders after a series of forced nationalisations. The link between the two was if anything strengthened, as evidenced by the business-as-usual approach typifying the 2010-present period: the banks once lambasted as ‘too big to fail’ are now even bigger, housing markets are being stoked into bubbles again and Nobel laureate Robert Shiller has warned of another US stock market crash.

Impact Theory

The initial chemical shock.
The subsequent shocks as “things” begin to swim themselves back together, as patterns are reasserted.
The identification,
Its attendants,
Its rules.

The imprint cannot be held indefinitely for evaluation, it decays, it is adapted.
If we can envision the imprint flash of signification, the signalled circuits, there is then at least the image of “a blueprint” from which we can seek to retrieve its information- a received architecture of reception, which could, in theory, being diagrammatic, serve as a stand-in for neutral ground and advocate for non-dismissal- the mask of the “objective good” which could allow the subject a platform from which the subject may voice what the subject may deem unvoicable of their thoughts without shame, without blaming itself for its unpalatable echoes.
the machines that breed together as they appear contorted “individualised”;; displayed inhabiting a new configuration in the host body.

does this stand-in for the not-born, this “image of a blueprint” exist outside?
It is declared all around us to trick us.
it lives in the doctors’ polluted questionnaire
it lived well in anonymity of the subject
it lives still in the strings of those who would compel themselves to become that-which-is-despicable on the public stage without cause or notice, as if embodying a collective demon could logically provide redemption beyond the cry of “there exists that which we will not voice”.

The moral subject being process, yearnings. Careful consideration and indeterminacy being taboo as weakness, “collectively” deemed* a virtue only when falsified.

The anonymous subject does well to declare the machinations of their perspective, to be sure, but it seems that a lifetime for that task would not be long enough, and shorthand does not appear to translate. Is it said that the process is born of the yearnings? The yearnings then; what may we call wholesome when the universal is the first thing to be misused in any struggle? Conventional wisdom holds that one Asimov could write new programming instructions for the human subject and a thousand abusers would be born, regardless. There is no perspective from which to counter this assumption.

*declared a virtue by “the voice of the public”

so inside gallery walls things appear to have materialised from the ether, so to speak, that special feeling of The Unknowable Source, or anyhow,
the gallery walls are contextualised in such a way that the recontextualising of objects that exist within them is not allowed to complete its transitions.

but that is all old hat, worn by the wide-eyed young and the absent rich.

so then you have the same interruptive-process occurring for certain people on objects outside of that space, frequently (everyone has Left Paris). although it is impossible to know: is the increased frequency simply a matter of increased availability of records, or elsewise still a matter of observer bias? almost certainly, but through/without the lens of technoshock we must strive to see the occurence as it is, resulting from a combination of several factors, in order to understand how to reproduce the occurrence in an effort to spread its power. of course it is possible if not innevitable that many if not all factors may be identified incorrectly,  yet many possible factors have made themselves apparent to my mind some of which i will mention below1 and infinitely more are as yet variously both known-by-others and unknown

when the interruptive-process does occur outside of those walls it gifts its user with the known-context of “human being with a workable symbology of oppositions” through which to see the objects they encounter inside the walls.

this is the skeleton key of endless spirals. it too is old hat but the hat remains one-size-fits-all. the most useful hat to ever put on anything’s head and easily available in any language at any time.

this the cyclical shift in power, and may the ever-breeding rats see fit to drown the ship’s cat. murals, window dressings, a shared hall on every street.

"movements" that is revolutions of understanding occur in this temporal environment "delocalised", "numbed" to the world stage2, and apparently in much faster succession than ever before, yet a man still must live the same number of days, and breathe the same, and reach the same plateaus.

1- the choices of recontextualisation that image-workers are forced to make being now the very-public choices of the many (which produces pockets of fervent and fruitful rapid transitions),
the power of the image being blown abundant into the hands of the many,
the shifting tides of history and sudden influxes of information making neat work of previously-held convictions.

2- to the world stage only. on the level of the human being emotional navigation remains the only possible method of navigation, and i think the machine, which runs not by direct index but through crowd-records of intuitive choices, will enter only further into this bargain and that a call from the void to the user for a numbed non-response may become increasingly rare if not entirely impossible. dopamine being that which supports the machine and feedback loops being the principle by which etc.

I am repeating myself.

just think how handy all this big data will be to yahoo’s for-hire marketing subsidiaries once pattern recognition on image use becomes as efficient as it is for text use. in terms of the prediction/manipulation of desires. i mean boy how often do i wish i had access to all that data just to watch it! that’s the first thing i thought of when i heard and i’m betting it’s gibson’s fault that it came to mind immediately. then i checked out the shoddy wikipedia list of their subsidiaries and they are indeed already operating on that front. saying this because i just saw one of their statements about the takeover on the dashboard and the language use seemed to confirm that as a motivation.
