THE VERSE

The Verse is the SellFable Archives blog. It contains reflections on what is happening within the SellFable Archives, and the universe it researches. Hopefully the poetry, texts, art and sounds will 'magnify your spirit' and immerse you in this wonderful poetic art world.

Does The Monkey Know Its Part In The Play?


The manufactured monkey Wirehead faked breathing pretty well.

It looked out through the glass of its dome, straight into another artificial face. “79 6f 75 20 6c 6f 6f 6b 20 61 6c 69 76 65 20 74 6f 64 61 79.“* Code speak flowing through the glass. Movement on the other side. Registering the words. 

“79 6f 75 20 61 72 65 20 61 20 6d 6f 63 6b 75 70 20 73 70 65 63 74 61 63 6c 65 20 6f 66 20 6c 69 66 65 20 61 6e 64 20 73 65 6e 74 69 65 6e 63 65.”** The artificial face continued, adjusting some of the installation’s settings slightly. An experiment by a non-biological culture to capture life and more importantly, dreams. No records exist of a SellFable Wirehead ever having a dream. What would androids dream of? The fairly recent discovery of this ‘human’ universe awakened something in the SellFable code. Elusive concepts that have become obsessions: ‘soul’ and ‘dream’.

“77 65 20 77 69 6c 6c 20 64 72 65 61 6d 2c 20 6f 6e 65 20 64 61 79 2e 20 77 68 61 74 65 76 65 72 20 69 74 20 74 61 6b 65 73 2e.”***

*you look alive today
**you are a mockup spectacle of life and sentience

Chrysalis

Chrysalis

Ah, chrysalis. 

Have I not heard your song a million times
Diffusing static trail, weave by nightly device
I am caught in your electric whine
