building appropriable information apparatuses
Sandra Álvaro Sánchez
Abstract. The interface is leaving the desktop, making it possible to access information everywhere and in everything, through the developing systems of ambient informatics and ubiquitous computing. This new interaction paradigm is being debated: it increases our collective intelligence but at the same time can be a perfect accomplishment of the Control Society. The aesthetics of matters-of-concern replaces representation for the tracking of the process that gives form to our reality in each moment, while Postdigital Art produces works capable of merging virtual and physical spaces. Both these related fields show and articulate the complex informational system embedded in our reality making it appropriable and subject to profanation. This visualization operation displaces the capacities of the system of ubiquitous computing, from perfect control to an increasing capacity of individuals to intervene and perform in their environment by interacting with it.
