Gerrit Lovnik, Lev Manovich - Digital Constructivism: What Is European Software?

'Take computer games as an example: The popularity of the navigation through space idiom in the U.S. games can be related to the traditional U.S. idea that you travel through space to build a character and to find your identity.'

'One of the most common forms of navigation used today in computer culture--flying through spatialized data--can be traced back to simulators representing the world from the viewpoint of a military pilot. Thus, from Vertov's mobile camera we move to the virtual camera of a simulator, which, with the end of the Cold War, became an accepted way to interact with any and all data--the default way of encountering the world in computer culture.'
