Excerpt from video.
AXIOM/E-1 manifests Istvan Kantor's obsessive interest in the body as individual machinery unit in relationship to systems of social machinery. Invaded by technology, the hardware of the newly repossessed body-machine is now the extension of all softwares, wired up, plugged into external devices, shackled to keyboards, perpetually on-line, processing information, transmitting messages, interacting through a unifying network.
