Pakui Hardware

Shapeshifter, Heartbreaker

Welcome to the post-office. The office no longer. The space is hollowed out for the action one is not able to see anymore. Imagine only. The velocity of algorithmic ecology, the promiscuity and aggressiveness of their interaction. Their digital materiality, blending the synthetic and organic, digits and hardware into a hypnotizing mess. This mess is shaping the real at this very moment. Penetrating the neutrinos with profitable information, causing and healing hysteria in the speed of light. Hysteria that trades bonds for news in high frequency. Bad news, good news, fake news, real news. Liquid(ity) hysteria. Hysteria of liquids. They say that an over-view is the gaze of power. In the blink of an eye the real on view is reshaped. Numerous times in different configurations. The power’s out of synch, out of tune. Volkswagen Golf on the wheels of Porsche.

Pakui Hardware is a brand name of a collaboration between Ugnius Gelguda and Neringa Černiauskaitė set up in 2014. Pakui Hardware appeared to fill in an empty space of a removed brand logo. The title Pakui Hardware refers to Pakui, special attendant of Haumea [Goddess of fertility whose children were born of various parts of her fragmented body] at Kailua, who could circle Oahu six times in a day. Thus Pakui Hardware is high-speed and brand politics as mythic semio-commodity as well as the desire to transcend the material limitations. Semio-Capital meets materiality.
