I happened to be up on the fourth floor of the Whitney Museum in New York, experiencing—or perhaps I should say re-experiencing—its restaging of Robert Irwin's legendary 1977 Scrim veil-Black rectangle-Natural light installation, a piece in which the California artist had started out by emptying virtually the entire floor, stripping it down to its barest essentials (the dark slate flooring, the gray hive ceiling, that stark trapezoidal window off to the side) and then bisecting the resulting vast empty space with a shimmering, pearlescent expanse of white scrim, held taut from ceiling down to eye level by a black metal bar...

To Catch the Exception

Gunther Anders (and more on him below) felt humans had reached a place where they preferred what was made to the one who made it. The creation over the creator. And that they felt this, or feel this, rather, in relation to themselves. Their sense of inferiority to the machine. Now this feels like the description one might give to Elon Musk or most of the transhumanist thinkers out there today (and a bit more on that below, too).
