Abstract (English)

"On October 20th, 2014, 17-year-old Laquan McDonald was murdered by police officer Jason Van Dyke in the city of Chicago, Illinois. An autopsy report found traces of Phenycyclidine or PCP in his blood stream. In 1986, Calvin Klein’s Obsession for Men was launched to critical acclaim and is among the top 10 best selling men’s fragrances worldwide. Since 2007, after studying the results of Pat Thomas who discovered fragrances can be used to keep zoo animals curious, Rony Garcia has been using Calvin Klein’s Obsession for Men along with heat and motion technology to determine the size and rituals of jaguars in Guatemala. Biopower, the way in which technology is used to monitor and navigate bodies both animal and human, if there is a distinction, is an effective trap that gets us every time we are high." -- Publisher's website.
