THE BEHEADING OF THE FRUIT FLY / ANTYE GUENTHER
A vinyl publication dealing with seductive, nevertheless problematic computer-brain-analogies while acknowledging potential other-than-human intelligence/intelligent behavior. It unfolds a poetic narrative of a machine that is talking back. This machine questions humans’ thinking and perception of the world in restrictive (binary) categories while expressing at the same time its longing for connection and for merging with its surrounding. The vinyl of THE BEHEADING OF THE FRUIT FLY (HOW WILL I KNOW IF YOU ARE TRULY A SENTIENT BEING?) contains electromagnetic sound emission of JUQUEEN, initially the fifth most powerful supercomputer in the world, located at the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany.
