‘The Beheading of the Fruit Fly (How will I know if you are truly a sentient being?)’ Antye Guenther

A vinyl publication dealing with seductive, nevertheless problematic computer-brain-analogies while acknowledging potential other-than-human intelligence/intelligent behavior. It unfolds a poetic narrative of the machine that is talking back, questioning human thinking and perception of the world in restrictive (binary) categories while at the same time expressing its longing for connection and for merging with its surrounding. The vinyl of THE BEHEADING OF THE FRUIT FLY contains electromagnetic sound emission of JUQUEEN, initially the fifth most powerful supercomputer in the world, located at the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany. Publishing date: Summer 2021
