On Dolphin Imagery

May 19, 2009

A discussion of Dolphin Imagery from Mette Bryld’s “Dialogues with Dolphins and Other Extra-Terrestrials: Displacements in Gendered Space” from Between Monsters, Goddesses and Cybords: Feminist Confrontations with Science, Medicine and Cyberspace, Zed Books, London, 1996.

The worlds of communism and capitalism, rearmament and peace, science and spirituality, immortal aliens from outer space and mortal earthlines, masculinity and femininity, yin and yang, whites and non-whites, nature and intelligence, animals and humans and technology embarking on ships of new metamorphoses, all these categories break out of the old order of things and interface in the strange smile of the dolphin.
