A collection of Posthuman Thoughts

In this blog, I share some of my ideas behind my posthuman existence. In some way, this is the imaginary of reflexions, experiences, lectures, references, readings, bibliography, notes, tests, dialogues, and sketches that orbit my work. English is my second language, so all grammar corrections are very welcome in the comments or by email. Some content is only available in Spanish.

Espiritualidad

La espiritualidad para mí es la manifestación de la vida; la noción de que estamos interconectados como un todo. Es un estado de conciencia de nuestra existencia como parte de un organismo diverso, en ese sentido la manifestación de la vida es fluida e ilimitada: un continuo vibratorio de energía cósmica.

Spirituality

Spirituality for me is the manifestation of life; the notion that we are all interconnected as a whole. It is a state of awareness of our existence as part of a diverse organism, in that sense the manifestation of life is fluid and unlimited: a vibrational continuum of cosmic energy.

Francesca Ferrando: The Art of Posthuman Existence – Interactive Workshop

My project is an ongoing beta experiment on Hybrid Spirituality. I build sensitive machines that enhance and amplify my human abilities to explore new languages and new realities. You can see them as poetic devices that I use to travel through the liminal space. My work is inspired by the spiritual practices of my ancestors. In this space, and for three consecutive weeks, I will be building a live exploration based on the workshop’s program.

The Emotion Machine III, Subtle Body (Vibrations)

A Sensitive Machine (English / Español)

The acceptance of reality seems to be difficult for human beings. We complete the world from our imagination; this is how our sensitive apparatus works. Some individuals are more sensitive than others, others more skilled in the art of figuring the sensitiveness of the image, but we all are equally figuring out reality by completing information from our brain. We indeed imagine the world.

The Emotion Machine at Chinatown Soup Gallery, NY.

Becoming a Machine (English / Español)

Emotions determine the quality of our lives. They occur in every relationship we care about—in the workplace, in our friendships, in dealings with family members, and in our most intimate relationships. They can save our lives, but they can also cause real damage. They may lead us to act in ways that we think are realistic and appropriate, but our emotions can also lead us to act in ways we regret terribly afterward1
