What is technology? Does it have an essence? Is its essence other than our own?
This month >ect sets out to “meditate” upon technology. In taking (another) look at one of its most influential elaborations, we attempt to recontextualise contemporary debates concerning post- and trans- humanisms, as well as revisit the ever important question: “How might we think technology differently?”
**Apologies for the crackling microphone from ~ 20:00-40:00. Despite our efforts to reduce them to instruments, our technological devices sometimes insist upon revealing themselves to us in unanticipated ways.
