Autohagiographies and Tentacles
The Opsonic Index is a multimedia occult organization
creating its own history and utilizing the magickal potential of brands
against the corporate desiring machine. It acts as a funhouse mirror that
disfigures the ideas of the dominant culture, displaying them in all their hideous
truth and pathetic hilarity. We realize that this discourse does not necessarily
need to be destroyed in one fell swoop constant ridicule and subversion
will cause it to rot soon enough. We also understand the nature of Control as
the systematic metaprogramming to facilitate the transference of desire into
obedience, faithful routine and consumerism.
These works explore our collective desire for corporate fascism as well as the sexual release found in committing commercial transactions. It also examines our collective desire to be dominated financially and sexually, to have our lives controlled by elites, resigning ourselves to the alienation caused by commerce. They also explore the new cult of celebrity and high finance that has grown up around the high tech industry which are drawing us all into a banal new-age materialistic world.
consumer culture continues to perpetuate the myths of limitless Capital to be
made online, as well as of the superiority of the technorati,
our new celebrities. Celebrity is a condition of extreme narcissism, a self-perpetuating
image where the original is not necessary. The Internet is a producing machine
for these similacra. A place where anyone can feel important, no matter how uninspiring their work may be.
This intro should be seen not as a rant but rather as a process of historification, something with which to build the funeral pyre. So here we have our exposés, repetitive like the never-ending thrusting in a porno movie. These are our money shots. Please hate them like you hate yourselves. Just do that for me and youve made one man happy. But please dont hate me because Im beautiful.
