Nervous Systems / Measuring Up by Laboria Cuboniks

“As we swirl about in the vertiginous technosphere, the translation of our world into a data-material complex, brings with it the promise (and threat) of the total measurability of life itself. While the debates rage, the leaks mount, and our world becomes parametricized into, and by probability patterns (a regime of risk management); our modes of governance remain largely trapped by anachronistic procedures that are incommensurable with twenty-first century reality. This talk addresses the need for, and speculates on post-Westphalian models that aim to measure up to the planetary demands of our entangled, collective, and technocondition — extraterritorial demands that are deeply at odds with the very concept of a border.” Patricia Reed and Diann Bauer
