I’ll be speaking at The Artist’s Institute alongside a showing of the work of Haim Steinbach this Wednesday:
Trees are machines. Some might think of a tree as an object, made of wood, covered in bark, but it’s not.
The philosopher Levi Bryant thinks of objects as machines, where a tree is defined not by what it has, but by what it does––the operations it makes, the inputs on which it draws, the transformation it performs, and the outcomes it produces.
Levi Bryant presents an expanded version of his lecture Difference Engines.
