life, as in art, we dream and work our own body into the perfectly
regulated instrument. We invent machines that will make us do
things IN TIME to a conceptual clock. They may be as literal
as an alarm clock, to wake us, or a sleeping pill to knock us
out; or perhaps a contraceptive pill to make sex fun; or a breast
pump to synchronize the hunger of the next generation with the
exigencies of this one's working day. Or a pair of clippers
to ensure that our hedge grows into the more appealing form
of a chicken, rabbit or little dog. Any kind of medicine, traditional
or homeopathic, all of which is essentially "unnatural" in its
function of delaying death.
these fictions are part and parcel of the same desire that makes
us edit a film: to re-invent ourselves.
