The Erosion of Silicon Beach

Cover - The Erosion of Silicon Beach

The tide line is a soft transition. Where capital meets the sea, it creates brittle structures, likely to shatter. The ocean’s edges may not be as fluid as they seem.

Panoramic photo of a sepia-toned garden. In the right corner a woman tends to plants with a one story home in the background.

The Pacific Rim is the land around the edge of the Pacific Ocean. I come from that edge: I am half Filipino, and half white. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA on one side of the Pacific Ocean, I am obsessed with connecting to that other side of it—back to my Motherland, the Philippines.

Numbers "1134" appear on a marbled calculator.

An NFT offers a generic something: some thing, neither here nor there, which exists in order to escape being worthless (a born loser). It escapes to the address it is given, and its value is held precisely there.

Instance Terrain Spread

Three dimensional modeled grey and white objects with rainbow striped overlays.

Written as a kind of trip-report with a posthuman sensibility, Instance Terrain Spread describes experiences that would be incomprehensible in conventional spatial reality, but are easily understood when experienced in a virtual space.

A narrow alley in Los Angeles. To its left is a screen protecting pedestrians from the highway. To its right is the LA River Bridge.

On February 22nd, I walked from my house in Northeast Los Angeles to the ocean in Venice Beach. I recorded the nearly 9 hour, 20 mile walk along highways, under bridges, and through different neighborhoods with binaural in-ear microphones.

Three Diffractions of LA

Featured image for Suzanne Kite - Three Diffractions of LA

I talk to my cousin Corey Stover on the phone and he teaches me hokšíkilowaŋpi (to sing a lullaby); we are both cruelly out of tune. He is in Oglala Nation, I am in LA, and we perform our distance. He sings to me and I to him, a short melody. I watch LAPD helicopters out the window of 242 East Avenue 41 and compose a short drone.

Close up of white mineral rock.

In the fall of 2020, I began gathering samples for what I’ve termed an Anthropogenic Mineral Collection. These carbon-based minerals consist of human-mediated byproducts of geological intervention from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The majority of those in my collection are caused by industrial mining of valuable conductors, and have not been recorded elsewhere as natural occurrences.
