“Self-feeding Machinic study #2,” charcoal on paper, 15″ x 10.5.”

I have suspicions that our depictions of machines and the interrelation of their components reveals to us, in a suggestive, even deceitful, way a level of psychological functioning the perception of which is not available to us otherwise. There’s a strange likeness between certain mystical engravings such as those associated with the Kabbalah and machine diagrams as if another mind is present and pushing itself into being. This could be seen to portent of the advance of automation into the realm of human work.
