Bubblemech Burleschatology, art - Michael Garfield Visionary Art (michaelgarfieldart.com)

What we think of as technology today is very limited: just, mostly, metal tools and implements.  But language is technology.  A lot of soft and squishy things are, too.  And as society evolves to keep pace with accelerating change, our tools will speed up too, and liquefy, no longer merely rocks but flowing substances that live and breathe and change as rapidly as we require of them.  Think of the black ooze in Prometheus, the über-tech that isn't merely one thing but a process of becoming, an accelerant to evolution.  We are moving out of nouns and into verbs, from things to actions.  This will be obscene to many – living tools will trigger the disgust of sanitation-crazy modern minds – but in that monstrousness is something luminous and beautiful (to "demonstrate" is to reveal what lies within, the "monsters" merely the repressed angelic forms of our unconscious mind).  Enjoy the glistening, metamorphic future and its violet psychofluids...
