[ISEA2008] Paper: Ollivier Dyens, Dominic Forest, Patric Mondou, Valérie Cools & David Johnston – The Geography of Posthumanity


In a world overwhelmed with data, we have to rethink the way we produce and handle information. Above all, we have to rethink the way we display it so that it becomes cognitively accessible. Can we give it a more intuitive form that would better lend itself to retention and understanding? Can we give it a form better adapted to human cognition? How can we convert a database into a story, a narrative? How can we make it useful, interesting, and appropriate while still allowing for memory and recollection to take hold ? That is the challenge we have set before ourselves in investigating posthumanism.
