CONTROVERSY LIMIT/OVERFLOW (by Micaela Muzi)
Implementing geometry as a metaphor for social regime, I seek to delve into the biological, technological and social transversalities that interfere in the development of individuals’ subjectivity. Subjectivity constitutes the basis for existence and the content that defines us. It is a dynamic entity through which we think, dream, feel, desire and experiment the world around us. Is there a possibility for the development of subjectivity inside the current parameters of the social regime?
Geometric, precise and delimited figures, symbolize the morphology upon which social systems are structured and built. Do limits contain and give structure or on the contrary, do they restrict and generate alienation? Does the act of overflow present fluidity and a possibility for change or, on the contrary, does it condemn us to live in a schizophrenic fluidity? Does the split of the social regime develop into a fertile territory to cultivate an equilibrium, or, does it turn into an arid zone with irreparable fissures? This inquiry delves into the circumstantial clash between limit and overflow.
In our contemporaneity, the rise of the visual and the proliferation of images establish an era of visuality. In this way, technology becomes a key factor of the socio-cultural formation of individuals. Does the possibility to develop subjectivity exist inside the technological sphere we are immersed in? Can splits in the technological structure be generated to become fertile ground in the sphere of mass-media standardization spread by our screens? Does technology’s geometrical thinking and its cerebellum of data-storage plates limit individuals’ synapsis?
