Justin Lincoln's notational productions. Thoughts, text, images, sounds, and videos.
Like many early aesthetic movements, the New Aesthetic (NA) is deeply romantic. It thinks it sees ghosts where there are none; ‘bots’ online that can think for themselves. The photoshopped people in CGI architectural images at construction sites. The NA’s poster child James Bridle insists, for example that spambots are evidence of attempts by “the machines” to communicate with us, the humans. Would that we could only listen to them, he insists, in his talk “Waving at the Machines” and an Asimovian full acceptance of these new emergent clumsy intelligences might be possible.
