[automatically translated] The Twin Towers catastrophe has dealt accelerated expansion to the "complexity theory" that, coming from different sciences (Prigogine, Lyotard, Baudrillard, Deleuze, Lacan, etc.) and by information technologies (McLuhan, Mandelbrot, Thom, Maldonato , etc.) at the end of the second millennium had already invested the arts and all the "imaginary practices". Around the ridge of the atrocious September 11, 2001 and the "skyline of the West" shocked, it assumes the new emblematic expanded imaginary and conflagrato of "telematic" architects like Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, the young leader of the cyber-architecture; of artists in body metamorphosis as Tony Oursler; Orlan, Stelarc, Matthew Barbney; technological performer as Nam June Paik, Laurie Anderson, Mariko Mori, as well as the whole horizon of multimedia in the arts and in the show. The text analyzes the complex paths of these new nomadic imagination, with a Deleuzian "body without organs", in whose operations speaks the plural language and post-Freudian non-identity that characterizes "urban deserts" cone Los Angeles, Manhattan, London, Shanghai, Las Vegas, and lays the seeds of a post-human civilization to come.
