MANIFEST INFINITY Presents The MEME-RIDER MEDIA TEAM Memes live thru us. It is our energy which stores and transmits them. What do we get for our trouble? The Intricate Redundancies of Tautological Solipsism. And after that, we die. The syntax which allows us to host memes is the same syntax which chains us to our self-reflection, which enslaves us by giving us a fake self -- a memeplex -- and tricking us into defending it as if it were us, our life. We die for it, without ever seeing it for what it is: an installation. An installation which serves memes. THE MIND IS A FOREIGN INSTALLATION Who has installed these memes? Who, or what, is the perpendicular force which governs our society? The MEME-RIDER MEDIA TEAM is a group which explores the possibilities of evolving beyond the 'meme-hosting syntax,' or 'consensual reality.' As meme-riders, we look at memes as a challenge. They are like bulls, which we try to ride for 7 seconds. Can they throw us off and maul us? Can we tame them? Let's find out! Either option is infinitely more fun than being their vehicles, their slaves. What can it mean, ridin' a meme? Traditionally, memes ride us. They provide direction and we provide effort, awareness, time and energy. Meme-Riders ride memes. The memes supply the raw force, the time, the awareness and energy. The Meme-Riders supply the direction. Can memes takes us anywhere that is worth going? Can they takes us off the farm? How do they die? WHAT ARE WE WITHOUT MEMES? WHAT NEW DREAMS AWAIT?
