Things inside Computer are both hidden and expressed. There are overlapping similarities and things nestling oddly in gaps between surfaces, surreptitiously inhabiting speci c worlds (cinema, fashion, an alias, another artist, etc) like a spy a dinner party or a bacteria hosted by that spy’s bowel.

Two events come to mind that may be pleasurable to imagine:
When a house y slips undetected into Seth Brundle’s teleportation device in Cronenberg’s 1986 lm The Fly, the telepod’s computer, confused by the presence of both the y and scientist, fuses Brundle’s and the insect’s genes, creating a volatile and hybrid lifeform, “Brundle y.”

In 1947, when an actual bug was found inside a malfunctioning Mark II supercomputer (a moth stuck between the relay ca- pacitors), the insect continued to camou age itself behind the word ‘bug.’
