“For over thirty years, my sculpture has combined human, animal and natural imagery to create a kind of emotional and poetic power. Often there’s a suggestion of a vital interconnection between the human and non-human realms; the imagery arises from associations, concerns and obsessions that are at once intimate and universal. The work frequently references mythology and archetypes in addressing our vulnerability amid changing personal, environmental and political realities. By focussing on older, more mysterious ways of seeing the world, edges of consciousness and deeper levels of awareness suggest themselves.” Adrian Arleo

Oslo, Norway based Fredrik Raddum works with sculpture, installation, photo and performance related journeys. He has exhibited at various spaces since 2001. Raddum popularizes serious themes and embodies them in tragicomic animal and human figures resembling cartoon characters. Clichés and icons are twisted and turned in to new settings. Without obvious display of critical attitude, Raddum’s sculptures drop subtle hints encouraging the viewer to think beyond the initial encounter.

!!! Robots Are Learning Our Pain Threshold !!!

Posted from The Citrus Report

We mean, c’mon, who doesn’t want a robot to know the human pain threshold? Was Jimmy Cameron onto to something or what!? What a really fucking useless invention. Robots with the human pain threshold. Seriously, humans, guess what? You don’t HAVE TO MAKE ROBOTS! You don’t HAVE TO MAKE ROBOTS BE HUMAN SO THEY CAN KILL US ALL IN SOME SORT OF COMPUTER HICCUP! Just because Arthur C Clarke and James Cameron wrote it doesn’t mean we need to make it! We can just stop now!

Oh, we are doing this so robots don’t hurt us? Again, don’t make the fucking robot! How ass backward is this?

Seriously, the 21st Century: The Century of Inventions for Inventions Sake.

Humans like to play games. Kids like to play video games. Adults like video games. People love social networking, Kids love social networking. This is basically what we all know. The future is going to be different. Way different, but nothing that evolution doesn’t already tell us. Just like the headline where we found this… “the future of games and reality and weirdness and points and things like that…”

The corporations will figure it out, and technology will figure it out. How to monetize and control EVERY aspect of our lives. It will a comedy, and a tragedy, all in one.

The video is 28 minutes, we know its long, but worth your time.
