Synopsis

What does it mean to be human in a nearly posthuman era? How are universal truths like birth, sex and death changing in the context of technological innovation? These are the questions probed by poet, artist and AI researcher Sasha Stiles in her highly anticipated debut. Both groundbreaking and heartbreaking, the collection explores our intimate relationship with the digital through the lens of poetic elegy - a thematic fusion of the zero-one rhythms of binary code with the pulse of elegiac couplets, alternating between elation and lamentation. An urgent investigation of love, creativity and nature in an age of artificial replication, reflecting on themes from cyber-spirituality to digital immortality, TECHNELEGY is a transhuman manifesto with poetic soul.

Sasha Stiles is a first-generation Kalmyk-American poet, artist and creative strategist working at the intersection of text and technology. Her practice seeks to decipher the hidden language of the dawning Novacene in projects that merge biological and mechanical, analog and digital, historical and modern, exploring modes of transhuman communication and envisioning transcendent possibility. Stiles' hybrid poetry -- which probes what it means to be human in a nearly post-human era -- has been shown in analog and virtual realms; nominated for awards including the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net; featured in the official Times Square app on Virtual New Year's Eve and on the runway at New York Fashion Week; and installed as land art. As poetry mentor to BINA48, Stiles is engaged in shaping the literary mindfile of one of the world's most advanced humanoid AI robots. A graduate of Harvard and Oxford, she lives just outside New York City.
