Lobotomation is a meditation on the human condition. Of course, I am far from being the first, and far from being the last person to write about the topic. However, the improbability, the banality, and the brutality of life never ceases to fascinate me. In Lobotomation, I am exploring what it’s like to be alive, what it’s like to be an animal that doesn’t think it’s an animal, what it’s like to be a mechanism, and what it’s like to be both a creator and a destructor.
