Virtual Weaponry

by Aaron Tucker, Virtual Weaponry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Virtual Weaponry books, This book examines the convergent paths of the Internet and the American military, interweaving a history of the militarized Internet with analysis of a number of popular Hollywood movies in order to track how the introduction of the Internet into the war film has changed the genre, and how the movies often function as one part of the larger Military-Industrial- Media-Entertainment Network and the Total War Machine. The book catalogues and analyzes representations of a militarized Internet in popular Hollywood cinema, arguing that such illustrations of digitally networked technologies promotes an unhealthy transhumanism that weaponizes the relationships between the biological and technological aspects of that audience, while also hierarchically placing the “human” components at the top. Such filmmaking and movie-watching should be replaced with a critical posthumanism that challenges the relationships between the audience and their technologies, in addition to providing critical tools that can be applied to understanding and potentially resist modern warfare.

Irresponsible Mediums

by Aaron Tucker, Irresponsible Mediums Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Irresponsible Mediums books, In 1968, avant-garde artist Marcel Duchamp and composer John Cage exhibited Reunion, a chess performance, in Toronto Canada where whenever a player moved a piece, it generated a musical note until the game was transformed into a symphony. Inspired by this performance, Irresponsible Mediums--poet and academic Aaron Tucker's second full-length collection of poems--translates Duchamp's chess games into poems using the ChessBard (an app co-created by Tucker and Jody Miller) and in the process, recreates Duchamp's joyous approach to making art, while also generating startling computer-made poems that blend the analog and digital in strange and surprising combinations. With an introduction by Jennifer Shahade, two time U.S. Women's Chess Champion. Praise for Irresponsible Mediums: "Marcel Duchamp's chess games played between 1922-1961 come alive with the Chessbard's translation of those games into poetry. This wonderful book by Aaron Tucker of (close to) 100 Opening, Middle, and End game moves generated from source poems by the author is a must read for Duchamp scholars, Digital Humanists, video game theorists, and chess fans. The poetry, along with the introduction by Jennifer Shahade, chess professional and co-author of Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess, sets the context for the art and performative aspect of game play." --Dene Grigar, Professor, Creative Media & Digital Culture; President, Electronic Literature Organization "As Marcel Duchamp observed, "Beauty in chess is closer to beauty in poetry." The opposite is also often true. These poems are beautiful gambits that, like the best chess games, delight and intrigue with their elegant and intelligent play." --Gary Barwin, Winner of the Leacock Medal, and finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and Governor General's Literary Award for Yiddish for Pirates

Punchlines

by Aaron Tucker, Punchlines Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Punchlines books, punchlines is a lyric long poem that probes the poetic tensions in the everyday languages of computer-user collaboration. Within the narrative structure of a Canadian couple's drive down the West Coast of the United States, the poems set this exploration between the call (poem title) and response (the poem itself) of jokes and punchlines, echoing the input-output (call/response) of modern computer-user cooperation, with the ultimate goal of infusing code with poetry and poetry with code. The first section is the initial trip down the coast while the second section houses poems in response to the return trip. There is little stopping in this long poem: the poems are told while driving or while in intermediary places like hotels and restaurants, and are deliberately full of jerky and fast hyperlinking motion.
