The Skinning of Memory: Vertebrae, Part 2 (VP2) Influences

(I) wanted something other than what I could make myself and I wanted to use the surprise and the collectiveness and the generosity of finding surprises. And if it wasn’t a surprise at first, by the time I got through with it, it was. So the object itself was changed by its context and therefore it became a new thing” Rauschenberg

The Skinning of Memory: (VP2) – The Medium of Television

” …the real is produced from miniaturized cells, matrices, and memory banks, models of control – and it can be reproduced an indefinite number of times from these. It no longer needs to be rational, because it no longer measures itself against either an ideal or negative instance. It is no longer anything but operational.” (Jean Baudrillard)
