City of Bits by W.J. Mitchell

W.J. Mitchell writes a collection of future scenes reflecting the impact of the digital telecommunication revolution in his book “City of Bits: Space, Place, and the Infobahn”. The book has seven chapters, each chapter consisting of a variety of short scenes of general architecture and urbanism. I am posting about this book because it has […]

The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

Overall, I found the author’s take on the way in which art is consumed in the modern age quite interesting.  Although this was originally written in the late 1930s, many of the author’s points can be applied to even today’s society, especially with his comparison of film and paining. I often found myself comparing technology […]

Air Guitar: Critiquing Art and The World

The Structure of the Book

Air Guitar by Dave Hickey one of those “snow ball effect” type of books, that starts off as  really slow reflective biographical anecdote, but gradually increase the intensity and pique one’s interest, gradually as one begins to turn the pages.  In a sense, the  book is structured in such a […]

Experience at ITP

 

ITP is like a good buffet. There are so many food in the restaurant and I have a certain limited time.

If I try to different type of food, it could be good or bad experience, but it would be better when you focus on big main stream. If you try too many different […]

A Small World After All?

The title: “A Small World After All?” makes me think of “Six degree of separation”. This theory not only reveals the hidden fate and mystery of the Internet, its further application will certainly be treated as a hidden power of social movement for the Internet.

For “six degree of separation” theory, it can be easier […]

Weird Thing Is Normal, Normal World Is Weird

Thanks to this essay,  my mind was extremely exploded.  I read it one month ago, and since then I try to always observe things around me with two questions: 1) Is it something that really weird or normal? 2) How to make it either weider or more normal?

From this new perspective, I feel the […]

Reading: Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is

In reflection to Scalzi’s “Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting there is”, I’m quite surprised that this article had provoked hundreds of people and raised up a dispute. Because usually, the sensitive subject matters are targeted toward minorities with certain gender and race. It seemed like the issue of using the term “privilege” was […]

Out of our heads

Most of us grew up believing that there is something within us, other than our brain, that makes us who we are- a mind/ a soul or just something not the brain. And for most of us, that belief has religious and cultural grounds. We believe that we perceive, think, act- are conscious because this […]

Alice in Wonderland: User Experience

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is one of my favorite books. Over the years, I have thought and written about it from various angles. The imaginative children’s adventure tale (technically not a “fairy-tale” since Alice wakes up making the whole thing a dream), the satirical portrayal of victorian society and the sinister, secret world of Lewis […]
