in_SubjectThe Era of Inter-subjectivity
“With the machine, a discrepancy between technics and culture begins because the human is no longer a ‘tool bearer’.” —Bernard Stiegler, Technics and Time: The Fault of Epimetheus
Technological advancement generated two revolutionary forces that run at cross-purposes. It provides human beings with proactive creativity and a congenial environment for production on the one hand, and threatens the value and freedom of human beings on the other. Individuals, as subjective actors, have no choice but to oscillate between both ends of the spectrum, sharing the collective anxiety about how to position themselves so as to regain their autonomy and creativity.
The general development of technologies have constituted a pluralistic, organic coupling system brimming with great uncertainty and figments of imagination. Such “organic uncertainty” is exactly the creative foothold that human subjects can secure therein, if you will. The theme “in_Subject” refers to a state of finding delight in mastering this technical system. This is an era in which technologies and human beings stand in an inter-subjective relationship to each other. Exploring the organic quality of techniques and promoting the knowledge, literacy and application of technologies are ergo the absolute prerequisites for modern people to regain their status as subjects.
