Becoming the Medium

Research, writing & visual experiments explored how mythologies of our coevolution with technology effect the ways we imagine and materialize our realities —a thesis in three parts past/present/future, and culminating in a series of mythical and science-fictional design methodologies.

The Visual Research

Compiled research inventorying and examining a history of communication technologies and the narratives that plausibly predicted/influenced their development. Economic and material innovation were omitted to focus on the social imagination and its narrative expressions. Stories were culled from science fiction, philosophy, film, technologists manifestos, ontological models, media theory, etc.. The project afforded a lens through which to peer into the future of communication and glimpse scenarios of what might lie ahead.
