“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

I'm Having a Funny (Nonhman) Turn

I guess Richard Grusin is introducing this shebang right now. There is an awful lot of media in this room. Displays of Earth, woodland reflected in mirrored elevator doors, letters suspended in something like a tokonomo display on the left hand side. I'm guessing there are about 500 people in here. Displays of sculpture and photography and computer animation by (in part) Erin Manning and Brian Massumi.
