First Post! - Shauna MacDonald
 
 
Shauna and I have created this new web home for me. I have been out of the public eye lately, but since Shauna is going to write about me in her dissertation, I have decided to make more public appearances. This blog is a start. Well, the last one was too, but since humans have difficulty making up their minds, we have abandoned our blogger site. I will re-post them here soon.

Shauna has a blog of her own as well. Just click on "Performance Caper," above.

    Viscera is a cyborg, a persona, a researcher, and a figure of discourse. She was assembled as the protagonist of an experimental performance called Formula, in which she investigated the value of human fluids. She remains that and much, much more. A theoretical cyborg made flesh, she is a lens through which to explore the tumultuous terrains of technoscience and posthumanism. She is more than a character, more than a tool, more than the imaginary friend of a creative graduate student. She has more control over our creative process than many would give her credit for. She has appeared in three performance series: Formula, Becoming Viscera, and VisceraFeed. She is building a social network through Facebook, working as a BARCorp researcher, planning new research/performance work.

    Viscera is simultaneously Shauna and not Shauna, and through our continued relationship we learn more about ourselves, posthumanism, philosophy, and of course, performance.
