The World as I found itOn the First-Person Point of View

"That representing the world in particular self-directed ways is part and parcel of being conscious beings is one lesson that pictures may be able to teach us a priori, at least if we look at them with some patience."

A new piece by Andrei Pop, author of A FOREST OF SYMBOLS, now up in the latest issue of Representations.

The first person represented as a subject’s field of vision, as opposed to first-person language, has only been around for a century and a half. Yet the claims advanced by its philosophical inventor, Ernst Mach, are momentous: nothing less than the dissolution of the self into a world of sensation...

We are saddened by the passing of Sylvère Lotringer, founder of

Escape the week with a full sensory experience of Alien Listening: Voyager's Golden Record and Music from Earth by Daniel K. L. Chua and Alexander Rehding with this Spotify list featuring the Golden Record songs: https://hubs.ly/H0ZY20C0 Zone Books
In 1977 NASA shot a mixtape into outer space. The Golden Record aboard the Voyager spacecrafts contained world music and sounds of Earth to represent humanity to any extraterrestrial civilizations. To date, the Golden Record is the only human-made object to have left the solar system. Alien Listening asks the big questions that the Golden Record raises: Can music live up to its reputation as the universal language in communications with the unknown? How do we fit all of human culture into a time capsule that will barrel through space for tens of thousands of years? And last but not least: Do aliens have ears? Explore these fascinating questions in Alien Listening : Voyager's Golden Record and Music from Earth by Daniel K. L. Chua and Alexander Rehding and published with our partners at Zone Books. Out today in North America and 9 November in the UK/Europe. https://hubs.ly/H0XgjQz0
