Pandemonium: The Rise of Predatory Locales in the Postwar World (Architecture at Rice)

€15,00

In our global society, information processing transpires so quickly that it is essentially timeless, and communication systems have become indistinguishable from the act of communication itself. The medium, once the message, is now invisible, resulting in new methods for wielding power in our decentralized environment. This is an exploration of the new techniques of control underlying our digital culture. Topics discussed include the transformation of relations between labour and machines in cybernetic and informational environments, and the reorganization of the urban fabric according to new methods of communication flow. The title is conceived as a "photo roman" in which the design, in collaboration with Brice Mau design, plays as great a role as the text.
