I had initially intended to produce a video response to what Martin Heidegger termed ‘Gestell’ or enframement, by which is meant the enframement of the earth, by the world: the technologic-socio-economic-cultural world, the world of people. Heidegger saw the essence of modern technology as the conversion of the whole universe of beings into an undifferentiated ‘standing reserve’ (Bestand) of energy available for any use to which humans choose to put it.
Not much energy put to use in this one.
