Paranoid Machines is a series of performances and essays about the history of memory technology.

From the supernatural mass-murder which inspired the Arts of Memory to the atomic/alien conspiracies which spawned the Web, information technology has always been paranoid. Long before before porn and spam turned obfuscation into a business model, the orderly logic of code was already infested with squirming bugs. There is no post-human escape into the mythological realm of code, because meaty conspiratorial sex-dirt is the paranoid structure of code itself.
