One of the big things that we’re going to talk about here is paraphilia. We’re going to talk about sexual deviance. We’re going to talk about the problem of people whose sexual desires lead to attraction to children, lead to attraction towards violent sex, lead to sexual transgression in one fashion or another.
I went about working out why it was that little Aboriginal girls could say they were boss for themselves. And what it meant to be independent and self-determining. But I also realized that to live in an Aboriginal community was to be embedded and nested in a constant set of relationships and responsibilities, and you could be boss for yourself, but only if you were also respectful of your relationships and your responsibilities and your obligations.
In this talk I want to suggest that it’s never quite as simple as to say there is technology and there is art. That there is technology and there is culture. Clearly these things have always been in dialogue and are still. So this means this is a story about art and technology.
