Digital Disembodiment

writing and artwork, 135 pages

A Masters thesis which explored digital capitalism’s attempt to remap the body. From the abstract, “As late capitalism continues its pervasive spread into spaces and temporalities not yet occupied, the limitations engendered by human bodies become increasingly untenable. Digital technologies provide both the model and the means for a body which operates frictionlessly within this always-on, always-improving framework. This vision forms a future trajectory for an updated somatic self – a colonized and dematerialised body which is sleepless, hungerless, discrete, disintegrated and self-optimised.”
