The (City) Context of the Machine

“In the city, the ironical and most compressive container of our constantly de-centering culture, the strata of the masses are not as distinct as those of the Earth below us. Each subculture, which is part of the continuing readjustment of all people, promotes its own separation, the result being a confrontation with the adjacent subculture.”

“Against the context of the social, technicism bears the imprint of our known cultural precedents while incipiently producing new ones. From this, it is possible and quite practical to believe that the ‘mechanicality of things’ will not continue to progress. And so, the cult of Technicism is elevated to an institution as inevitable as the cult of Humanism.”
