“we are fragmented and multifaceted bbs”
The Cybertwee Manifesto is a fascinating document. Infinitely more tolerable than every other manifesto you’re attempted to read, it is a call for an understanding of the body as an emotional machine without reducing either of those two seemingly disconnected qualities. The coextension of the self into emoji mechanisms willfully, fully going beyond the pale of what can be expected under neoliberalism, is a strange thing.
Instead of becoming more solid in the face of the destructive potential of capitalism–the bloc–or antifragile or a glass cannon of affect filtered through social media, The Cybertwee Manifesto aims at full dissolution into softness.
