All you need now is in pinned messages

The joy of a rabbit-hole—a state when you binge-watch YouTube, for example, consuming all the suggested videos one by one. Their sequence is built in such a way that each next video clings to the affect born of the previous one. By no means should it create the desire for you to stop your pleasant sliding along the bends of the comfort zone. “Guessing” desires by algorithms, but at the same time not-going-beyond-the-comfort-zone, can be contrasted with the joy of multitude, where attention practices are distributed between “personal-intimate” processes — centered around the body, the screen, in cooperation with devices and sensors — and presence in heterogeneous networks, interweaving with other bodies.

Live-action role-playing (LARP) practices can generate this kind of knowledge-experience heterogeneity and allow you to focus on developing and experiencing skills that you might not have previously. Narratives schematically constructed by LARP participants can become a platform for testing forms of collective action.

We are drifting along 3D spaces. An additional dimension is a voice channel on the Discord server. The places of our drifting were created by the method of photogramming — an algorithmic reconstruction of a 3D model of space based on a combination of panoramic photos. We are looking at a museum of computer technology, where it is impossible to read the text for the objects presented. We find a burnt-out apartment, which, by pure chance, appeared online in the public domain. The 3D model of the apartment was developed in order to record the damage from the fire as accurately as possible to use in court in case the insured event occurs.for a possible court in an insured event Some of us have a digital elevation model of the entire planet open in the adjacent window; 4GB of data in one file. 

After the burnt-out apartment we find ourselves in the casino—we “go” from the hall with slot machines to the poker hall. Some of us are lagging behind, because of our slow Internet connections, and the pictures do not have time to load fully — the space becomes bathed in a technical gray, revealing the most interesting pieces—places where photo panoramas are glued together, blind spots of space. “It's hard to get out of these tunnel-like spaces,” notes Yessirskiii during the session. These are sets of spherical panoramas pretending to be a 3D model. These spherical localities have no relationship to each other.

Folds and joins stick out, you tilt your virtual head upwards and see—a blot of blur is gaping above you, something that was not captured, that was paid little attention, that stopped a little ahead of time. The temporality of our drifting is being eroded in these interfaces—by clicking on the pointer icon, we skip through them one by one, “rush through” the corridors, our attention is controlled by the capabilities of the interface.

In computer games, it takes time to climb the stairs, but here there is “the illusion of barrier-free movement,” says Sasha_dcc. We rush through a flash of blur, without the ability to grasp the details. Blur is a tool for deconcentration of attention, only it is not controlled by us but by the manufacturers of “3D” interfaces. “The feeling of dizziness caused by such an inhuman way of perceiving space was enhanced by the blurring effect that accompanied every transition between panoramas,”Flika666 states in her conversation with Yozhi

Continuous partial attention, “the way we surf, looking in multiple directions at once, rather than being fully absorbed in only one task,” (Linda Stone) comes into conflict with the idea of unison. In this case, collectivity can give rise to multiple forms of objects or processes. In her book Now You See It, Cathy Davidson considers continuous partial attention to be a digital survival skill and useful tool for navigating a complex world, with the trick being not to try to bring everything to one, one object or sound in unison, but rather to navigate complexity. Not to be in the bubble; instead, to break these bubbles by “teaming with others who see what we miss.” Centralized single attention creates blind spots filled with possible moments of joy and danger that may go unnoticed. 


Attention on an industrial scale. For companies that generate surplus value from screen time, it is important to force users to collaborate inside of platforms owned by these companies. The most important information here is the precise moment at which the content from other users needs to be shown to me. This is done in order to capture my screen time, to force me to respond, to start a new cycle by capturing my attention.


Natalia Tyshkevich, a member of the DOXA editorial board—a Russian student-run popular journal dedicated to critiques of the contemporary university—is currently under house arrest, and denied the possibility of using the Internet for the two months that remain until her next trial. Natalia has an electronic tag on her leg that “looks after” her location, or rather, her distance from the home station. The home station (stationary monitoring device) only pretends to be “homey”. In fact, it does not care what kind of apartment it is in—the proximity of the bracelet is all that is important to it. The electronic tag cares about warmth and staying in a non-hacked state. “Kinship” with these devices, tied to practices of submission and control, deforms temporality and violates the boundaries of the body.

“Natalia Tyshkevich congratulates everyone on May Day: “The shackles of the regime will surely be taken off, but for now you can decorate them with new stickers!” / Photo and caption from the DOXA telegram channel

“My cyberfeminist past directs a strategy to enjoy mixing and to treat technology with friendly feelings. I was ready to do this for such a technology like house arrest. This is an interesting anthropological field. However, the electronic tag is an extension of the body that I did not agree to. I am not ready to take this technology positively. I'm not ready to be friends with it. I decorate the bracelet with rhinestones and match socks to it, but I hate it. I feel how it violates the boundaries of my body every second with my skin,” Natalia says. 


The bot cleans up information after users, tactically covering traces in a neighbourhood yard chat. These chats appeared as a response to the impossibility of centralized resistance in the revolutionary situation in Belarus in 2020-2021. Using the map, you can find your yard—a place between several residential blocks that are open and can easily be walked through, a place of meeting and struggle—and join the discussion of collective actions with other chat participants just like you. Here, the information is temporary—this is not a place of archiving—if you do not make it in time, you will not see it. The temporality that emerges from neighbouring chats continually re-actualizes the present, offering participation in the here-and-now.

I open a chat that I haven't looked at for a week and think about how to quickly scroll through all these messages, how not to get stuck in past conflicts and logistical arrangements of the day before yesterday. A moment—and the chat interface will be scrolled on its own. Messages are automatically deleted. Parts of the chat interface begin to move at an inhuman speed, flying past me like blurred spots in 3D photograms that you “fly through” while moving between locations. April 14th. Then May 18th. And between them is there is emptiness. Only dates are stuck in the interface. This is automatized “tactical forgetting.” There are unsynchronized bodies left that only remember a few messages. Dashed memory of the bodies of those who look, read, observe, write, and act based on this unsynchronized thin layer of the present.

The technical impossibility of being led by the fear of missing out is a liberating impossibility. An archive interface that cannot be viewed is scrolled through as a transit zone. At this moment, there is pleasure to be taken from the fact that there are many interesting things ahead and there is no need to rake over past troubles. All you need now is in pinned messages.

Missing archive for 21 years., a Belarusian information and service Internet portal, was blocked by the Ministry of Information of the Republic of Belarus on May 18, 2021. “As far as we understand, servers, software, disk drives—they are all taken from the site where they were located. I will say that the disappearance of access to our servers looks like a raider takeover,” says Kirill Voloshin, co-founder of, in an interview with the Reformation project.

** the Belarusian state economic university.

*** an unmarked minibus (usually blue or gray) is quietly driving along the road near the sidewalk. The compartment door is ajar. Suddenly two men in black jump out of it and quickly run towards the people. Those who spotted the "minibus" in time manage to escape, and the victim is grabbed and taken to the bus. After that, it quietly drives away on the road.


Documentation of “Economic Orangery 2021” session / by eeefff

Find ten different ways to slide off a gymnastic ball onto the floor. Try each of them several times to get a feel for its specificity. Feel with your body how each method is different from the others. At what point does this difference manifest itself? How do you act upon the gymnastic ball? How does the ball work upon you? Pay attention to the quality of your movement. At what point do you squeeze muscles, pull bones together, and at what point do you stretch or twist? What is the source of movement—your head, neck, arms, shoulders, shoulder blades, chest, hips, thighs, legs, or feet? How fast is the movement? How does it start? How does it end? Try to explore your movement, balancing all the time, moving all the time. Keep your eyes open while paying attention to what is happening around you. Try to integrate your eye movement into your overall bodily movement. Try to get your head involved in the overall muscular coordination of the body. When you fix your attention on one part of your body, try to connect the rest of your body to the resulting coordination. This could be difficult to practice at first, so say these simple rules out loud to yourself. 


Interfaces are connection machines, machines for formalizing interdependencies between connected bodies. To think of being in the world through interfaces means to think through the states of “connectedness.” Multi-layered interfaces create a sense of the co-presence of bodies separated in space, and the simultaneity of affective states spread out over a period of time. Let's try to get even closer to the “attached” body. Let's try to closely examine how this connection is arranged, how it unfolds in time, how it is woven into the body. Let's try to give it materiality and see how it spills over the bodies. Discrete flashes of connection make bodies shudder. 

We invite you to an experiment. Find a place where you will not be distracted for several hours. Disconnect all network connections. Unplug your landline phone from the outlet, put your mobile phone into airplane mode. Lie on the floor. Place your device on your belly. Calm your breathing, correlate your breathing with the weight of the device. Lie there for an hour, watching your thoughts. Now turn off airplane mode on your device, turn off the sound and leave it set to vibration only. Lie in the same position that you have spent the last hour. Put your phone on your belly. After some time, the first notification will come to your phone: feel it muscularly. Remember the breathing phase at the moment of vibration. Remember the muscle sensations at this moment. Try to play them back from memory. If you repeat this exercise several times, your breath and the vibration of your device will link together.
