How will it be set up?
1. My project will be a video essay which mimics the methods of Bois’ filmmaking by trying to present these ideas through the use of machines, specifically my computer.
2. My goal is to record my computer screen and use the different applications, websites, and functions of the computer to visualize the aforementioned ideas I will be narrating in the essay. Think Unfriended, Searching, but way less ambitious in my end goal.
3. My set up is to start by presenting an outline of what I mean by posthuman, then go into Jon Bois’ films and the meanings it has within this category.
4. Donna Haraway’s The Cyborg Manifesto is one of my current reference points but I’m also planning on adding in more references to texts on post humanism.
