19th Hybrid Conference: Grégory Chatonsky
The code without sense
Monday, November 9th
Location to be announced
A person talks about computer code, how it expands to biology, sociology, ontology, about its underlying widespread ideology of control and equivalence.
He comes back to the first cybernetics and the universal machine, he attempts to tell its invisible genesis, its ideology. He explains that the code is not only mathematical. There are signals, flux and waterfalls, turbulences and noises, clinamen, a rumbling trouble.
A machine listens to the narrator, identifies some of his words, looks for a response on the Internet and predictably interrupts him. It pronounces a word, a sentence, sometimes several sentences. Sometimes, what the synthetic voice says is related to the conference, sometimes there is no relation. Two soliloquies follow one after the other without meddling.
