Description

Science and technology have had a profound effect on the way humans perceive space and time. In this book an international team of authors explore themes of depth and surface, of real and conceptual space and of human/machine interaction. The collection is organized around the concept of Technospace - the temporal realm where technology meets human practice. In exploring this intersection the contributors initiate debate on a number of important conceptual questions: is there a clear distinction between the "real" space of the body or with city and the conceptual space of "virtual" reality?; how are the real and metaphorical space of electronic cultures quantified and regulated?; and is there an ethics of technospace? Historically the reception of new technologies has been invested with romantic idealism on the one hand and panic on the other. The authors argue that in order for utopian dreams to be tempered by ethical, humanistic needs, we have an urgent need to reveal, reflect upon and evaluate technospace and our relationship to it.
