Web 3.0 and the (R)evolution of Desire: The Quantum Leap from #MeToo to #WeToo
YouTube Video of the presentation at MIT Media in Transition + May 18.
Dr. (Shiva) Lisa Paul Streitfeld had a Kundalini Awakening at her father’s funeral in 1983 which shattered her reality and set her on the twin flame journey which took her around the globe. She was completing the mission of her father, Harold S. Streitfeld, co-founder of the Kundalini Clinic, in becoming the first Kundalini Philosopher of the Hieros Gamos of western culture.
Dr. Streitfeld is the author of Kundalini’s Daughter, Hermeneutics of New Modernism (Atropos Press, 2014) and ÜBERMENSCH: Nietzsche, Salomé & the Ages of Aquarius, her Ph.D. dissertation for European Graduate School (magna cum laude, 2016). Her most recent blogs (drshivalisapaul.com & hierosgamosjournal.com) chronicle her 2019 real time quantum leap into Web 3.0 while disseminating literature and her Quora adventure detailing the twin flame journey. In thirteen years as a newspaper critic and curator in greater New York, she tracked a new modernist movement (1997-2010) in over 600 articles, reviews, essays and blog posts.
As a Ph.D. candidate, her Huffington Post Arts (R)EVOLUTION series (2010-2018) resulted in a declaration of a Badiousian Event at European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. This was the culmination of three papers on the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in art: the 2009 Dublin XLIIIrd International Association of Art Critics (AICA) Conference; the 2011 Arts in Society “Arts in Science” conference in Berlin; and the 2012 College Art Association Centennial Conference in Los Angeles.
On May 16-17th, her fidelity to the Event declared at the Saas Fee Media Lab on September 9, 2019 culminated at the MIT Media in Transition +10 in Cambridge “Media in Democracy” when she delivered a paper from her new text: “Web 3.0 and the (R)evolution of Desire: The Quantum Leap from #MeToo to #WeToo.”
A former Hollywood script analyst and novelist, she has written on contemporary art for Sculpture, The New York Times, The Hartford Courant, The Los Angeles Times and Art New England, as well as several avant-garde journals. As a Connecticut art reviewer (2000-2005) for Tribune Newspapers, she won the 2006 UUS Margaret Fuller Award for tracking a grassroots movement sourced in the hieros gamos.
Dr. Streitfeld’s holistic approach to art criticism is chronicled in “Overcoming the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: Art Theory Arising Out of Wolfgang Pauli’s Collapsed Wave”. The multimedia project “Missing James Franco 3.0” was initiated in conjunction with her Ph.D. dissertation “ÜBERMENSCH: Nietzsche, Salomé & the Age of Aquarius” in the Philosophy & Media laboratory at European Graduate School.
Lisa’s New Media GESAMTKUNSTWERK reflects her twelve-year journey (2007-2019) to disseminate a new art theory of the hieros gamos through multiple mediums in new media. She is active on Quora with over 33 K views.
