Evolution of The Body Spanner

Our 'cestors were aware of the relationship between the size of the handle and the weight of the percutor so that a hammer or spanner could either break very hard stones or carve a wooden object.

They used counterwights to control the impact and the direction of strokes and soft items as absorbers to take advantage of the stone splinters.

The first cutting tools ranged in size from 40 cm to one meter. About 5,000 years ago, cutting tools gradually reduced in size until they became microblades (the microliths, shorter than 2 cm) whose handle was made of wood or bone.

It was about eight thousand years ago, during the Neolithic period, when one of the major advancements in the history of mankind came about.

Modern Day

A more elaborate juxtaposition of art and manifesto occurs in the this website's use of the art form that constituted the second meaning of spectacle and that even more than the theatre (or urbanism) seemed to come close to embody the spectacle itself: The Internet.

Debord’s most important definition of the spectacle reads: ‘The spectacle is capital is such a degree of accumulation that it becomes image’ Society of the Spectacle,p.32.
