As a form of countercultural resistance, hacking makes no claims to ideological coherence. Hacking is inherently impure, working as it does in the gaps within structures. It takes advantage of the piecemeal nature of the most seemingly-unified organizations, thereby complicating the easy polarities of engagement and refusal. It does not work to establish a coherent agreement based on an existing logic, nor does it simply negate and replace an order. Instead, it temporarily inhabits a network just long enough to discover and implement new possibilities. By problematizing the notion of engagement, hacking can be seen as both destructive and constructive, both revolutionary (creating interruptions by inserting new designs into technological systems) and evolutionary (driving the development of the system forward).
At its core, this is a restatement of what I more simply laid out as my mission:
To create small moments where people can see things they’ve never seen before.
