If technological systems are implicated in the structuring of knowledge and knowledge systems are implicated in how technology operates … how do we start to think the world otherwise?!

"We understand the world better if we tremble with it" - Edouard Glissant


Background + Explorations

NB: > denotes big interest in this idea.

  • We know that technology orients knowledge and constrains what world(s) can be thought, studied, imagined and critiqued. But where do we start when we want to do things differently?
  • Toolset for ‘thinking the world’ by paying attention to both matter and form. >
  • What other ways of calculating, validating, ordering collections of digital material could emerge? >
  • Entangled forms of responsibility.
  • Possibility of webs of connections. >
  • Objects do not preexist their intertwined worldings. >
  • Agency is not an attribute but the ongoing reconfiguring of the world.
  • Particular material articulations of the world become meaningful.
  • To breathe life into ever new possibilities for living justly. >
  • How datafication contributes to ‘iteratively’ re-inscribing the ‘Digital Divide'. >
  • Firstly, consider geo-political and body-political orientation when designing, building, researching or theorizing about computing phenomena.

ASCII - characters hold weight but are worthless without the white space.

ASCII Villages, manifesto village, they work in relation to each other

TF-IDF - emphasized words the contrast in a text in terms of font-size Also playing with colour to add tones of humanity

the manifesto will be flat if it is not being surrounded by others, explore how we can remove small parts of the ‘village’ to highlight the relations and differences, removing text files changes the TF-IDF result

philosophical algorithms - speaks to a wider question of the need for multiple to have weight and difference.
