Coherent Disturbance   (series)   Binary Non?   2018  A compendium of edited scans of computer dictation 'mistranslations' encountered whilst reading Brian Massumi's  Parables for The Virtual. What’s left of the original pages, are the page number and the torn post-it note used to mark each area of particular interest. Onto these scanned and edited pages, I pasted the ‘mistakes’ which occurred as I read aloud from the book to my computers dictation option.  In  Parables for the virtual , Massumi discusses how cultural theorists construct a grid upon which they pinpoint society and its members. He persuasively argues that the virtual gives us a way to move beyond that stultifying way of categorizing and thinking about society and culture which misses the ‘movement’ of lived experience. By providing examples of how the virtual as a creative and imaginary space offers a new way of engaging with the actual, flux, change, evolution and dissolution, which is the ongoing experience of the living.  The title; Binary Non? plays with narratives surrounding identity politics and binary/ non-binary discourse. In order to re-complicate the reductionism which occurs in trying to pin-point ‘subjects’.
