Originally for this webpaper, I intended to write about how the films Tron Legacy, Teknolust, and Conceiving Ada incorporate themselves into and challenge the theories discussed about the intra-actions of gender, information, science and technology. However, such a focus could manifest itself into a thesis/ dissertation, and I unfortunately do not have the immediate time to achieve that project on a quickly approaching deadline. Nevertheless, I am happy to have settled down into analyzing and theorizing how GIST intersects indirectly using Karen Barad’s concept of entanglements.
Now... tying back into my original question, "how does GIST manifest itself into our world?" I would argue that the question at the root of this course is what it means to be human, how a human extends itself through the cyborg. In the presentation above, a slide presented how I would re-organize the course. It listed that I would first go about defining information according to our understanding of noise and how it is recognized. According to that noise, I then argue that science emerges as a way to process the noise into categories for further study. Those categories is what allows the evolution of technology, however with that evolution, it is impossible to let of go of the categories established in order to achieve that type of advancement. Further, I question if it is possible to mark ourselves and our environment through technological advancements without conforming to the cosmetic notion of perfection? Ultimately, how do we categorize ourselves without sustaining a binary? I argue that it is impossible to disentangle ourselves from the product we aim to achieve because humans do not know how to be objective since our body is what we know best.
