Ryutaro Nakamura – Serial Experiments Lain [1998]

Dedicat lui Puck. Din cauza unui comentariu.

We’re all connected… There is the world around us, a world of people, tactile sensation and culture. There is the wired world, inside the computer, of images, personalities, virtual experiences and a culture all of its own. The day after a classmate commits suicide, Lain, a thirteen-year-old girl, discovers how closely the two worlds are linked when she receives an email from the dead girl: “I just abandoned my body. I still live here…” Has the line between the real world and the wired world begun to blur? [de pe coperta DVD1]

Tendinte imperialiste

Stema Rusiei Imperiale facuta din diverse specii de gandaci. O interesanta piesa de design, plina de semnificatii. Am gasit niste fraze interesante referitoare la gandaci:

The bug’s body is a disappearing act. Phantom limbs have the power to make their presence felt in their absence. The bug’s body is a void. The bug’s body is an object of fascination (object cause of desire): the more that someone tries to kill it, grind it underfoot, spray it, and lay traps for it, the stronger it seems, the moore ubiquitous, the more remarkable, the more fascinating. Cyberculture has never given up on bugs. [aici]

Gandacul ameninta sa stapaneasca lumea. Ce insecticid credeti ca ar trebui folosit?
