Our experience of place has always been a mash-up of the personal, social, natural, and manufactured environments. But what happens when an always-on layer of digital technology is added to the mix? This presentation explores three major themes at the intersection of placemaking and digital media and challenges us to consider the evolving role of design in a world were everything has the potential to become an interface.

  • 4. Digital Theorist, Benjamin Bratton asks if it is possible for asingle person to come into contact with 1023 discrete objectsin one’s lifetime.1023 is not even every piece of paper one will touch in alifetime, nor is it equal to every word on every piece of paper.It is more like every molecule of ink in every word on everypiece of paper you’ll touch in your life.And this is now, theoretically, an addressable entity.
  • 5. Digital Hacktivist, Ricardo Dominguezinvokes the vastness of digital space inthe Zapatista Tribal Port Scan (ZTPS)project.A “port” refers to the over 60,000software connection points on anycomputer available for possibleconnection with other computers onthe Internet. While e-mail and theWorld Wide Web, for example, areconnected through specific ports, theremaining ports are available to be“scanned” by any other system forpossible connection points.Comparable to other forms of civildisobedience in public spaces off-line,the ZTPS registers a huge collective,politicized presence in digital space.
  • 6. Let me tell a quick story about my dog, Silo. Silo is my dog. You mess with my dog and you’re messing with me! But Silo is also a dog… a dog among dogs. Acts like a dog! Silo is a database dog.  Syntagmatic dimension : a speaker producesan utterance by stringing together elementsone after another, in a linear sequence.  Each of those elements was chosen from alarger set (ie: all the nouns that contain theactual noun selected).This is the paradigmatic dimension.
  • 7. “…perhaps we can arrive at new forms of narrativeby focusing our attention on how narrative anddatabase can work together. How can narrative takeinto account the fact that its elements are organizedin a database? How can our new abilities to storevast amounts of data, to automatically classify,index, link, search, and instantly retrieve it, lead tonew kinds of narratives?” Lev Manovich from The language of New Media

  • 32. In “The Man of the Crowd,” Edgar AllenPoe’s narrator sits inside a London coffeeshop characterizing people based on theirappearance. This passive spectation isabandoned when the narrator encounters acountenance that defies categorization. Atthis point the narrative leaves the coffeeshop and enters the flow of the crowd,following the stranger.
