- Jin Wicked's The Universal Turing Machine. Wicked's art bears witness both to the indiscernability between the practices of human bodies and the practices of machines expressed in Turing's work and to the violence done to his own body as a result of circuiting with the cybernetic system of government control and communication (Turing received estrogen injections to "reduce his libido" in lieu of a prison sentence after authorities discovered his sexual relationship with a young man in 1952, was denied government security clearance due to his homosexuality, and eventually committed suicide by ingesting a cyanide-injected apple in 1964).
