Publisher's description: Steve Rushton's research is an investigation into feedback, social control and the contemporary culture of "self-performance," developing a thorough analysis of the techniques and processes of information management and subjectivization in Western society since the second half of the twentieth century. This book, second in a series inaugurated by the Piet Zwart Institute, articulates a clear relationship between diverse subjects, drawing from a broad range of archival materials from military experiments in social psychology to works by Don DeLillo and Ant Farm. It includes texts on art and media linked to theories of cybernetics, Rushton's collaborative projects with Rod Dickinson and Thomson & Craighead and fictional and allegorical texts, giving these observations narrative form.
