RACHEL SPEAKING TO YOU DIRECTLY: ((MANIFESTO))
I oscillate between biologistics & biosemantics....
SPEAKING BIOSEMANTICS: enunciate specific nodes within the systems of feedback between human meaning-making and biological processes.
My Biosemantics media involve mysticism, poetics and aesthetics in processes often explored by hard science....
DOING BIOLOGISTICS : invent and deploy tactics as embodiment of biosemantic studies.
My Biologistic actions products and processes are intended to directly affect the physical realm and materials that exist in space.
