A Tree in the Desert of Post-Modernity Many contemporary critics agree that we are witnessing the twilight of postmodernism, and that a new mode of culture has emerged since the start of the 21st century, in particular since the terrorist attacks of September 11, Raoul Eshelman proclaims the beginning of the Performatism period, Gary Potter supports the thesis of a new Critical Realism, Eric Gans speaks of Post Millenialism, and Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, in their most recent book, Commonwealth, argue for the existence of an altermodernity in the current socio-political context.

When a foreign agent takes one of those objects out of equilibrium, it tends toward an unexpected fate, dragging behind it other surrounding or faraway objects, like a row of dominoes where the first knocks down the next one. This is what we call Catastrophe of the 2nd Kind. The desert, because it is flat and isotropic, is the least catastrophic place.

Except when stillness is broken by a beetle dragging a pebble, or a weed grows out of a crack, or a poplar finds water and grows. And this is clearly also a Catastrophe of the 2nd Kind. If we extrapolate this concept to the altermodern framework we find the same idea that altermodernism is an attempt to impart meaning to seemingly chaotic modern cultural practices.

Bourriaud says, in his book of the same title: Hence, precisely, the metaphor of the archipelago around which Altermodern is articulated and which 9 Emphasis mine.

It is a special type of fractal that appears when the behavior of a complex system is modeled in a computer. The Nocilla universe seems to be in its charted form or in its conceptual image a representation of the archipelago of altermodernity, that is, a symbolic representation of the most recent cultural practices, in which disparity, multiculturality and multiplicity chaos recover the idea of modernity by re-forming a positive image of chaos.

Idiosyncrasies of a Networked World. Marked by a dot on the final map, the characters in the Nocilla universe come both from our historic world and from the imaginary world created by the author, in a sort of conceptual coexistence in which, behind each character, there is an idea connected to the theme of the book. The presence of Christopher Columbus, Michael Landon, or Guy Debord, among others, in this conceptual map is not a coincidence: Great nomads are people of immovable ideas, as they leave behind people and cities.

Moreover, They all have their idiosyncrasies and eccentricities, which allows them to surf from one culture to another without really belonging to a specific place or to a monolithic idea of nation. This escape is illustrated by characters that present a constant intercultural and semionautic dynamism. This new topos or virtual non-place reappears in the novel hand-in-hand with the concept of micro-nations.

In micro-story 39, the author comments on the existence of these nations to which it is possible to belong virtually and can be found on the Internet pages listed in the middle of the narrative: One of them, the narration mentions, is the kingdom of Ergaland and Vargaland www.

This micro-nation is made up of adjacent territories defined by physical spaces political borders, coast lines, spaces outside territorial waters In sum, a virtual annexation of all conceivable non-places which we could classify as the epitome of conceptual art in relation with altermodernity by developing non-spaces in a virtual community that offers a sort of apolitical asylum to the Internet user who so desires it.

Another Nocilla character, Sokolov, is a Polish musician based in Chicago and interested in abstract music and noise music. Similarly, as part of Altermodern, Katie Paterson art practice consists of transmitting moments of silence from Earth to the Moon and vice versa, and transmitting the sound of a melting glacier via telephone Altermodern 13 , which offers an idea of the altermodern project in its approach towards a confluence of time and space.

So now more than ever, common Reality imitates the artificial, Art. That Art, which is now the new Reality, overwhelms because it is excessively mainstream, which is why the Chinese have been copying everything Western for some time, though they introduce a few changes; they customize it. In its parody line, the text offers us another version of alterglobalization: In the narrative we discover a colony or American characters who decide to take their modus vivendi to China.

To compensate for the Chinese diaspora in the many Chinatowns in the West, the novel develops the creation of a community of American citizens who live in the south of China in their Little America. He looks up.

The swinging of so many shoes hypnotizes him and he dozes off… He wakes up with the sun. The idea of constructivism is therefore relevant. The character of Falconetti illustrates this idea: At a certain point in the story, he decides to abandon his effort and tosses a small world globe into the ocean so that it can travel around the world in his stead.

In this way this error turns us into gods through reductio ad absurdum. Its peculiar fruits—shoes hanging from its branches—may be considered representations of the new altermodern model, combining the radical model of modernism and the postmodern rhizomatic model, as we have attempted to argue throughout this essay.

A highway in which, it ought to be stressed, there is precisely nothing. A mile stretch with a brothel at either end. In conceptual terms, only one thing on the entire route vaguely calls to mind the existence of humanity: Falconetti, an ex-boxer from San Francisco, had decided to walk the length of it. He went into a shop in Carson City, a supermarket with five foreshortened, ridiculous shelves.

A stump, he thought, if these five shelves were fingers.

He bought bread, a large number of freeze-dried sachets of jerky, and some butter cookies. He set off, passing through the city limits, leaving them behind; the silhouetted plateau rose up before him in the distance. After a time he came past the Honey Route, the last brothel before the desert commenced, and Samantha, a dyed brunette who was doing her toenails in the shade of the porch, acknowledged him in the same way she always acknowledged passing cars, trucks and pedestrians, simply wishing them luck, though on this occasion she also said: It was a shoe, a shoe thrown into the middle of the asphalt expanse.

Neither 2 nor 4 nor 8, nor any other even number, but the odd number par excellence: Billy the Kid, making the journey from Sacramento to Boulder City with his professional mountain-climber father, was used to travelling in the back bed of the truck among the millimetre ropes, the Petzl harnesses and the large assortment of carabiners.

Billy the Kid was beaming.

They had breakfast at the first gas station they came to — the classic, deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and coffee — and Billy the Kid, swirling the dregs of his decaf coffee, pictured his mother a few hours earlier when, at the entrance to the town, and possessed of a beauty that to the child seemed definitive, she had drawn his head to her breast before giving him a kiss.

Billy the Kid slept in the back and when he woke, in the distance, stock-still on the asphalt like a rabbit without a litter, paralysed by the uncertainty that is a magnet to solitude, he saw it, a high-heeled shoe, brown perhaps from the desert earth, or perhaps actually brown. Neither 2 nor 4 nor 8, nor any other even number. Love, he thought, like trees, needs tending to. The sun and snow have been eating away at the vehicle since a man who was never seen again left it there.

His name was Pat, Pat Garrett. He showed up one November evening, just as the temperature was about to drop, asked for a girl, the youngest they had, and Sherry stepped forward. His penchant for the photos came from his time at the bank, from seeing so many people; he always found himself imagining what their faces would be like, and their bodies, in a context beyond the teller window — itself somewhat akin to the frame of a photograph.

But after receiving the inheritance money, his other penchant, gambling, had seen him lose almost the entire sum.

Now he was headed east, to New York, in search of more photos. He opened the suitcase and began passing her photos. Picking one from the deck she was confronted with the unmistakable visage of her mother. She was smiling with her arm around a man who, Sherry understood, was the father she had never met.
