    • 3. What Are Screens? “The existence of another virtual space, another three-dimensional world enclosed by a frame and situated inside our normal space. The frame separates two absolutely different spaces that somehow coexist.“ - Lev Manovich, An Archeology of the Computer Screen -  A novel trichotomy based on the physical possibilities of screens:  Static Screens  Dynamic Screens  Interactive Screens
    • 4. The Static Screen
    • 5. The Dynamic Screen
    • 6. The Interactive Screen
    • 7. Why Research Interactive Screens? “The familiar is that to which we are accustomed; and that to which we are accustomed is hardest to ‘know’, that is to see as a problem, that is to see as strange, as distant, as ‘outside us’ ...” Nietzsche 1974, no.355, p.301  This is not a presentation.  Screens are ubiquitous  Interactive screens have taken flight in recent years
    • 8. How Can we Research Interactive Screens?  Screens are embedded  Screens undergo rapid development  Experience of screens: Phenomenology “Phenomenology studies the structure of the conscious directed mind from a first person perspective“  Used methodologies:  Lucas Introna and Fernando Ilharco  Don Ihde  Medical Anthropology (Mol, Radstake, van Dijck)
    • 9. Phenomenology on Interactive Screens (1/3)  The traditional approach (Introna & Ilharco) did not research interactive screens  Evade experience  Attract attention  Display relevance  Interactive Screens: Imply immersion  The essence of screens is ‘already agreement’  Screens are shaping cultural surroundings  Interactive screens can produces virtual worlds  Problematic in existential phenomenology
    • 10. Phenomenology on Interactive Screens (2/3)  A framework of ‘I - technology - World’ relations (Don Ihde).  Results of the application of the trichotomy of screen to postphenomenology:
    • 11. Phenomenology on Interactive Screens (3/3)  Traditional phenomenology shows us  how screens are experienced in a larger cultural perspective  but fail to explain virtual worlds  Postphenomenology shows us:  that interactive screens change perception  screens are developing towards complete immersion
    • 12. Case Studies  Screens in the Public Space  Car Navigation Device GPS Leads Driver to Cliff's Edge  Screens in Medical Practice The phrase "You have  Sonograph reached your final destination" almost took on a whole new meaning for one British driver on Sunday when the soothing robot voice of his car's GPS became a siren's call luring him toward his doom.

    • 13. Interactive Screens on Phenomenology  The research of interactive screens encounters the boundaries of existential phenomenology.  A new understanding of essentialistic thinking within postphenomenology is described.  Phenomenology fails to account for larger cultural influences on technology.
    • 14. Conclusions  A better applicable trichotomy of screens  A unique understanding of interactive screens  what they are  how they act  Contemporary Phenomenology  can produce notions of essence of technologies  has problems describing virtual worlds  needs to rely on empirical philosophy
    • 15. Questions?
    • 16. To the Drinks themselves! A Dutch Approach to Understanding Celebration of Graduation Café Het Bolwerk
