if the robot is the third order of simulacra, i suggest that the production of self through multitudes of interwoven simulation (the smile, the attire, the rhythm of speech, the activities/actions, the preferences...) is the fourth order. there is no self. only simulation.

i love david foster wallace's 'infinite jest.' one of my favourite parts is the description of the film about medusa fighting the odalisque, where a whole theater of people are slowly turned into stone or gems because they have the misfortune of watching this fight take place.
i wanted to depict what a classical fight (perseus vs medusa) would look like if the perseus in question was fighting wallace's odalisque instead. and losing.

a less violent rendition of what it's like to suffer from a sleep disorder.
i had just listened to this episode of radiolab, where a woman talked about coping with chronic pain by imagining she was a saint and the pain was somehow a good thing. so i tried to depict what it would look like if you took the same approach with night terrors and hypnopompic hallucinations. if you were really religious about it, wouldn't it be kind of romantic? i mean, hell, you'd be a prophet!
