I imagine the city connects infinite layers of networks to defy.
Shaping the superficial modern metropolis by placing social fabric onto stitched architectural frames.
“I operate as a man-machine interface.”
The cyborg self within me emerges along the cities edges,
I hack the surface of space configurations.
I am the seeking stranger of urban life who needs to disobey restriction;
feeling disconnected in a rebellious reunion of public and private outlines.
I wander off the ordered path and find a more uncertain line of direction.

 “I operate as a man-machine interface – that is, as a technological form of natural life – because I must necessarily navigate through technological forms of social life. As technological nature, I must navigate through technological culture. And technological culture is constitutively culture at a distance. Forms of life become forms of life at-a-distance. Because my forms of social life are so normally and chronically at-a-distance, I cannot navigate these distances, I cannot achieve sociality apart from my machine interface” Lash, S (2002).
