As I was reading Capital is Dead by McKenzie Wark during lockdowns, making these brain harvesting devices became a way to play around with some the ideas in the book.
“ There really is something qualitatively distinct about the forces of production that eat brains, that produce and instrumentalize and control information. This is because information really does turn out to have strange ontological properties. Making information a force of production produces something of a conundrum within the commodity form. Information wants to be free but is everywhere in chains.”
