• Friendship in [at/of/by] the Technosphere: 1948 Unbound

Golding, Johnny, 2017, Residency, Friendship in [at/of/by] the Technosphere: 1948 Unbound

Abstract or Description:

Friendship is neither a gift bestowed with 'strings' attached; nor is it a 'lost object' of desire. If we re-think it in terms of a 'being-with-alone-together' - an odd connection can be drawn in terms of the seemingly sterile nether regions of 'machine learning', where 'zero' no longer denotes a 'nothing' and where '1' no longer denotes a 'positivity'. Instead, it requires taking seriously tools brought forward from the digital-computing world of machine learning, where the infinite terrain stretching in all directions (zero) is pock-marked by various segments (one's). This performance piece emerged after a sustained research into Friendship (published as a peer reviewed book chapter).
