DIGITAL ANTHROPOPHAGY AND THE ANTHROPOPHAGIC RE-MANIFESTO FOR THE DIGITAL AGE - Performance by Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez © Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez
It's been a long journey since the caravels at the turn of the 16th century to today's promise of a culture of sharing and a decolonization of borders, but turbulence disrupts today’s Nautilus, which seeks to navigate the international waters free from any land-based government. The whole world has been calculated and fits into the internetworked mobile digital device. The new acculturation tool. Its ensuing dynamics becoming the new El Requerimiento.

We communicate with information being trafficked at inhuman speeds. We are devouring each other and assimilating the world in a process that Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez calls information metabolism, the core phenomenology in her theory Digital Anthropophagy and the Anthropophagic Re-Manifesto for the Digital Age. The work is performed and shared in ritual with the audience.
