Soft, Hard, Wet: Speculative Genealogy of the Artificial
MA thesis of artist Natalia Jordanova. Dirty Art Department, Sandberg Instituut, 2020. The text "is an attempt to shift the position of viewing, which always has been human-centred. A way of thinking that presents objects in a flat and equal ontological order to avoid the centralisation of power and dominance of one form of life over another. A world-changing from nature to simulation, from things to information. Though initially as opposites, organisms and machines and humans and animals are all agents in a constant flow of interweaving. Artificial life is being produced by Gods and later humans, in their ever known attempt to be in power, wanting to live forever, to overcome the natural limitations."
