Chance-seeking as a way of making sense in the time of technological entanglement

  1. 1. Chance-seeking as a way of making sense in the time of technological entanglement Emanuele Bardone Institute of Informatics Tallinn University, Tallinn Estonia
  2. 2. Transposition of meaning As we take the pen or pencil in our hand, you can only sense the pen or the pencil in between our fingers. But, as soon as we start using it, something mysterious happens. The main effect of such transposition is the creation of a new way of doing something in the world
  3. 3. I want to cycle in the dark (goal) A bike light is what I need (means) A bike light is designed to serve the purpose of cycling in the dark I don’t want to get surprised I am just implementing a course of action determined beforehand
  4. 4. Calling and chatting with people writing
  5. 5. She’s using it as a notetaking tool Summer School on Design as Inquiry, Helsinki, Finland, 2013
  6. 6. She’s not taking a selfie, but she’s using it as a mirror
  7. 7. you flip the camera
  8. 8. Re-appropriation or creative re-use

  23. 23. Conclusive remarks…
  24. 24. Ends are not given, but they become conceivable in relation to the means that we come across in due course We like getting surprised We don’t plan, we tinker with whatever comes in handy in the form of chance events What we do is inseparable from us, our being-in-the-world It’s an exploratory, individuating, and path-creating process
