flesh machine

Critical Art Ensemble rocks. Check this:

“… unlike the military (where the soldier is supplied with the technology to transform he/rself into a weapon system) the civilian force will buy the technology of their enslavement…”

and later:

“… the body must be trained to meet the demands of the technology…”

A bit deterministic, but still disturbing.

    They are quite excellent. You’ve seen their web site, right: http://www.critical-art.net?

    “the civilian force will buy the technology of their enslavement” is sort of like us paying for our education!
