On Paralogic Practices

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewKonferenceartikel i tidsskrift

Abstrakt

Whereas Metro-net is a personal and very direct artistic response to the internet as the metaphor of the information terminals of decentralized globalization, All that is Solid Melts Into Data is an almost clinical dissection of the material effects of data (and by inference, the internet) on the future conditions of the city. It is possible, I will claim in the following, to see both Metro-net and All that is Solid Melts Into Data as evidence of a new kind of practice in the post-internet city; a practice that is skeptical of existing iterations of both the “city” and “technology” and looks at how these two concepts actually materialize in the spheres of post-internet citizens. Underneath the dissent and antagonistic attitudes, practices such as these aim to establishing a new, other logic—a para-logic—of things in the culture of ubiquitous information.
