Scroll is an act of pleasure is a declaration of a contemporary state of being, of the intra-screen subject.
“We live in a time of circulating meat, fractal meat and
ghost meat. A time of extreme loneliness and experience
alienated. Of bodies acting from spaces
remote, with split physiologies and agencies
multiple, and where these bodies are at the same time
agents and owned by other agents. Without being one or the
another without being entirely here or there … only present in
part and almost always absent. The body is experienced
today more as an open system than as
a closed structure. These bodies are not suitable,
are empty, jerky and oblivious to your
own will. We live in an era of excess and indifference,
prosthetics and augmented operating systems.
An era of disembodied organs, of organs waiting
