In Grand Theft Auto 5 there is a mission called “guardian angels” where you have to protect your bro who has a money transfer to do or something. It doesn’t matter, but what does matter is that you have to drive around and protect your bro. Well, isn’t it so crazy that cars drive themselves nowadays. It’s like insane. But in-game autonomy, decision making, still dependent on technology as a vessel. Maybe it’s a stretch.
Do you want to hear about cars? There’s like this one video from a little while ago where like some people are fucking in a Tesla while it’s self-driving on the highway. It’s not on the big pornsites anymore. Because Tesla hated it. They got their lawyers to sue the websites or something. I can’t find the original upload anymore, I don’t think it was the sex, I think it was because you weren’t suppose to use the selfdriving function like that yet. People at Tesla were scared. Tesla was really scared that people would think that the auto-driving was fully functional and ready. No joke, it would be really dangerous. It’s kind of weird, like, to conform to this like different thing, but it is what it is. I think the people in the Tesla were just like doing what all the people working at Tesla probably wanted to do.
Taissa Fromme’s & Anna Pelz’s works are inspired by these weird, new-age depictions of neo-nature. Transmissive forms of cultural stigmergy are explored through a type of reworked performativity and functionality in relation to the personalized feedback of the image – or more importantly, its behavioral autonomy and agency. In the reversal of its polarity, these acts set the egregores of cultural automata free as transient iconographic stages via meta-material stasis. Escaping from the encoded infrastructure of parasocial systems reliant on behavioral alteration masquerading as self-improvement, they are strewn from their chaotic habitus. Reclaiming that energy, the eternal accident of replication, mediatization, enlargement and decay – we are just two girls trying to have a good time. The most immediately noticeable effect is that we ‘feel better.’
