Witch, monster, alien and a cyborg — each passes the line between fiction and contextual reality, stereotype and fear, oppression and powerful force at the same time. Everyone has the ability to change the form of their choice, to scare their tormentors, to find power in a strange world.
Monsters roam among us in many forms, digital, technical, visual, natural, at the same time frightening and completely familiar bodies. Mushroom-shaped monsters also introduce the concept of “plant” movement, the basic creep of rambling, which is inconvenient from the point of view of habitual perception. Fungi allow the transfer of genetic information or programs that can be saved in the event of cataclysms no longer on a planetary, but, for example, on a galactic scale.
- How do we feel in reality?
- Who are we creating and who is creating us?
- How did information lose its body?
- What does it mean to be visible?
- How did the historically specific construct called man give way to another construct called the posthuman?
- Where are the limits of the creep mechanism, the creep stretch?
