Art and Aesthetics Mediated Through Technology

Time for Media Intervention! How do we make sense of the world at large, our world, and others’ worlds is one indispensable question that should be asked each time we feel something. Feeling something, to me, is a primitive right of any living organism to (re-)embody the embodied. You may define it in terms of the […]

The Future in Retrospect

Looking back five or ten years ago, we were just younger versions of ourselves struggling to grasp a sense of the present (at that time) and think real hard about what’s awaiting us in five or ten years’ time. Or what we might become; what we’re expecting from ourselves, from society, from the world… Obviously, […]

Don’t take the generosity of new media for granted! Make use and discover more.

Conglomerates reign, a glory pastime In the past, and perhaps not very long ago, […]

Mixed Realities: Actual vs. Virtual vs. Augmented

To me, bringing the ordinary sense of reality to a mediated one, be it virtual or augmented reality, the technical agent’s job is to mobilise the dimensionality of information to certain but variable degrees. My most intimate experiences with any kind of mixed realities are perhaps 3D movie-watching, encountering photos on Facebook with which I […]

Global Mnemotechnics as Extensions of the Mind

I’m going to start this discussion with the recount of my trip to Japan two years ago. My Story Well, basically, I went to Osaka and Kyoto with two of my college friends. And our site-seeing was proudly led by our cameras the whole time. To recollect and, perhaps in the attempt to make more […]
