The Senses

February 9th, 2009 · No Comments

Another fun quick read by the remarkable thinker Paul Virilio who wrote The Aesthetics of Disapperance in 1991. In Art as Far as the Eye Can See, he debates the ramifications of the disapperance of the aesthetic. He reminds us of Albert Camus’ observation that 20th century would become synonymous with fear and how fear perpetuates to dominate our lives. As our love affair with the allure of technology intensifies, we may benefit from sensing the human spatial presence and the potential of developing the ability to detect electromagnetic fields and strengthen our other (eleven or twelve) senses.
