"Sunshinism" - Lecture Performance by Arjuna Neuman
Sunshinism hails from tomorrow. Like many religions before it – the sun is central to its beliefs. Although in this case it is a cyborg-sun, a thermo-nuclear-sun made with Science. And like the real sun, this religion shines everywhere.
In this lecture, Arjuna Neuman uncovers a religion from the future. He borrows modes of research from cultural anthropology, theology and history, as well as forms from yoga, the New Age and YouTube to describe the “heart of brightness,” our emergent techno-spiritual framework. The lecture traces the inception of this framework in the American West and the explosive-flash of the first atomic bomb, and tracks it forward through our collective implosion, our becoming-smiley.
