besides all that (a deliberate dip in technology to build the possibilities to resist it)

“The relationship between art and technology is now unquestionable and consensual. And yet, nothing tells us that we should not keep the degrees of scepticism at high levels. On one hand the widespread dazzle in what the latest technology relates; on the other hand, the fascination that obsolete technology produces both in artists and market. Both are presented as visible signs of a reality that is ours: the technological and digital society in which we live. The central issue still remains the determining of the origin of decisions: the utopia of artistic gesture or the aporia of the technological primacy. From the attempt to resolve this duality may arise the possibility of a critical and operational vision for contemporary artistic practices.”
