ORGAN PROJECTION (draft, Iceland, 2012)


Based on Ernst Kapps (1808-1896) idea of the organ-projection, Christian Stefaner-Schmid
identifies sounds and signals as a projection of body and mind, corresponding to the notion that
"intelligence needs a body", which is discussed extensively in the field of cognitive science.
Organ-projection according to Ernst Kapp became apparent in our technology, such as weapons and tools.
Taking this idea a bit further stefaner-schmid states that, what ever mankind creates is based on an
embodied blueprint and hence already existing in some ways, resulting in the posthumanists dream of a
technological enhanced and more durable "human" body and maybe even mind.
