aired: 10/19/2014
artists/guests: Jennifer Moon, Robert Watkins
venue: KCHUNG

description: Capitalism has co-opted desire to the point where it can no longer be used to produce truly revolutionary modes of being. In order to create a new world beyond binary and dichotomous understandings, we need to act from a place of abundance rather than a place of lack. But how do we do this when capitalism has thoroughly seeped into our biological makeup, dictating how our genes express themselves in each one of our 100 trillion cells? We essentially have capitalist cells that continually drive us to seek acknowledgment, reassurance, fulfillment, value, and love from things outside of ourselves. How do we change our gene expression to adventure within, to bring that love inward, to know wholeheartedly that we are enough for the mere fact that we exist so that we may finally engage in a revolution beyond our current imagination? Every day our cells die off and we have to replace and re-engineer one to two percent of our molecular being. Let's make these cells revolutionary! Robert's desire playlist.
