… feelings are biochemical mechanisms not based
intuition, imagination or

They are solely and exclusively based on calculations.

 Organic and Machinery are two different concepts.

We are now increasingly investing on

their seeming fusion

and on making our interaction

(more) intimately mechanical.

Informed by a constant flow of biometric data,

the algorithms of

execute a transversal monitoring of us.

The synthetic character inducing the intergalactic journey

in Organic Machinery (video), activates this secret


Through our data the interaction between artificial and human agents has become virtually indistinguishable.

We have achieved control of all emotional states…

… through binaural frequencies,

 we have merged a (mechanical)conscious activity

and a subconscious energy(human).


Based on all processed information a new spiritual manifesto is generated, a more evolved form of knowledge is created.

In this context, and through a Machine-Brain ritual, Spiritual Automata has shown interest

in interactions.

Spiritual Automata generated a set of apparently organic drawings which,

via the observation of unidentified planets

in the Solar System,

speculates on the possibility of a new field of socialization.

It has algorithmically defined a system of XY axes to represent this

series of cosmic energies.

Using colours,

portals unto the non-perceivable are designed


to the image of biotechnological sciences which, on different scales,

encompass the invisible and the supra-sensorial.


the need to materialize the invisible led us to conceive the Single Breeders:

a set of dysfunctional machines that invoke

the spirit of the bird

                                            Kauai Õ´Õ

Its last song of instinct and survival

is an attempt to attract an already inexistent mate. announcing the end of its species.


We become confused.

Uneasily, we realize that the

classification of social orders is a

transcendental task.

Despite the resemblance between beings,

incompatibility is crucial for the reproduction of

our algorithm.

THE ORGANIC-MECHANICAL WE invests on knowing itself beyond our constituent elements.
