The Thought Network: From the Actual to the Virtual
The Actual and the Virtual Existence of Thoughts, Digital Collage, Molly McAndrews, 2020
The diagram constantly manoeuvres in conflicting states, energising new conditions of being. Although one could argue I create the diagram as the artist, it became clear that the conceptual diagram expands in autonomous waves, exhibiting such an agency that evolves, connects and listens to things that aren’t just human. I began turning thoughts into digital matter, activating a digital mode of being. I found the idea of the digital self captivating, and how the networks that the diagram operates in (human/non-human/past/future/actual/digital) are not isolated acts. In fact, the shape of our networks are meshing together constantly in our evolving condition of being and becoming. Rather than the digital being a thing itself, isolating and acting alone, it becomes a set of practices.
