Humanimentical Prototypes

Humanimentical Prototypes are sculptural assemblages that investigate the microphone and its necromediatic contexts of surveillance, parasites and horror. The works position the microphone as an agential performer, one whose consequent representations (recordings) forge a pathway towards monstrous potentiality rather than any singular notion of the real. 

Keywords: agency, horror, surveillance, non-human

'The microphone comes to reflect something built out of the horrific: a chimeric indexer of border crossings that continually splits or spits outward, into and through its subjects. There is a latent horror therefore within the microphone, an instrument that hacks away at spatial and bodily borders' (Wright, Leonardo Music Journal, 2016).
