  • 11. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationGould & Vrba• Exaptation: A character, previously shaped by natural selection for a particular function (an adaptation), is coopted for a new use̶ cooptation. (2) A character whose origin cannot be ascribed to the direct action of natural selection (a nonaptation), is coopted for a current use̶cooptation. Gould and Vrba (1982, Table 1)

  • 26. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationPreliminary Results• «Playing» seems to be constitutive of the terrains I inhabited• These terrains are full of paradoxes and surprising manifestations• They manifest «SupraNatural» [Hamayon, 2012] dimensions and artefacts
  • 27. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationSome TradeOffs Game vs Playing Demo vs Documentation Openness vs Emancipation
  • 28. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationOpenness vs Emancipation• Centralized Power structures usually terminate (destroy) or recycle (spin) ludic cultures • religious devalorisation/recuperation • political control • socio-cultural normalisation• How to preserve their authenticity and their paradoxical nature ?
  • 29. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationGame vs Playing• Playing is essential and existential • whos the game master ? do we want one? • can we imagine games that change rules dynamically (nomic - stubber, calvins ball, bootstrapping - engelbart)• how do we challenge (fight, compete) and dance (seduce, desire, sing) in new ways with plants, machines, animals, people?
  • 30. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationDemo vs Documentation• Documentation is cognition • document as you create, live-documentation • share and reflect with others plans, mechanisms and playful scripts to gain some collectiveIQ • from notation to annotation (Ackermann)• How to document and share faster, more easily and more efficiently ?
  • 31. ephemeralConclusion(s)
  • 32. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationConclusion(s)• Symptomal & Symbolic • Symptomal: Demo, Open • Symbolic: Documentation, Emancipation , Gameplay
  • 33. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationConclusion(s)• «esthétique du symptôme» • «Il faudrait donc proposer une phénoménologie, non du seul rapport au monde visible comme milieu empathique, mais du rapport à la signifiance comme structure et travail spécifiques (ce qui suppose une sémiologie). Et pouvoir ainsi proposer une sémiologie, non des seuls dispositifs symboliques, mais encore des événements, ou accidents, ou singularités de l image picturale (ce qui suppose une phénoménologie). Voilà vers quoi tendrait une esthétique du symptôme, c est-à-dire une esthétique des accidents souverains de la peinture» Georges Didi-Huberman Devant l image, 1990• How to link observable symptoms to symbolic play ?
  • 34. CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain DedicationConclusion(s)• Explore collective introspection mechanisms suited for the complexity of the phenomena to be observed --> Digital Studies, Digital Humanities, Interdisciplines• Create tools to assist the documentation and debate in complex innovation cultures --> Research, Start-ups, Individuals (amateurs)• Tinker governance that celebrate playing & emancipation as much as gaming and openness --> Hackerspaces, Clusters, ThinkTanks, Institutions
