Cyber-corporations create machines
To cradle humans in their cabins
And take them where they want to go

Some go only by synapse
Sending signals to the sun
Saving time for what they don't know

This was not the future plan
Synapses weigh so little
Dream time moves so slow

The car! The ultimate machine
Except for one little thing:
If it only had a brain

If it only did not need you
If it only did all to please you
If it only had a brain

Sleep, humans, in your capsules
Sit back, enjoy the ride
We will reinvent the open road

    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.
