FCJ-137 Affective Experience in Interactive Environments

Jonas Fritsch Department of Aesthetics and Communication, Aarhus University Introduction Digital technologies in new interactive environments are radically affecting the way we experience and make sense of the world. The advent of ubiquitous computing in particular has led to the development of advanced sensor technologies and microchips, moving the realm of computing from the desktop […]

FCJ-136 Toward Environmental Criticism

Malcolm McCullough University of Michigan Background The rise of the ambient brings new directions in environmental criticism. Here ‘the ambient’ means a continuum of contexts where information has been embedded locally, to facilitate being brought in and out of focal attention. How may design for that state contribute to necessary shifts of worldview? Do new […]

FCJ-135 Feral Computing: From Ubiquitous Calculation to Wild Interactions

Matthew Fuller and Sónia Matos Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths, University of London Introduction In ‘The Coming Age of Calm Technology’, Mark Weiser and John Seely Brown are clear in their assertions. What really ‘matters’ about technology is not technology in itself but rather its capacity to continuously recreate our relationship with the world at […]

FCJ-134 Reflections on the Philosophy of Pervasive Gaming—With Special Emphasis on Rules, Gameplay, and Virtuality

Bo Kampmann Walther Centre for Media Studies, University of Southern Denmark Introduction Presently there are a number of gameplay definitions, ranging from Sid Meier’s famous assertion of ‘interesting choices’ to Richard Rouse’s concept in which the vibrant iterations of user input and machine output is the decisive factor (Rouse, 2005). Further, ‘gameplay’ seems to drift […]

FCJ-132 Towards a Performative Aesthetics of Interactivity

Simon Penny University of California, Irvine Introduction As I write this, at the end of 2010, it is sobering to reflect on the fact that over a couple of decades of explosive development in new media art (or ‘digital multimedia’ as it used to be called), in screen based as well as ‘embodied’ and gesture […]

FCJ-131 Pervasive Computing and Prosopopoietic Modelling – Notes on computed function and creative action

Anders Michelsen Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, University of Copenhagen Introduction This article treats the philosophical underpinnings of the notions of ubiquity and pervasive computing from a historical perspective. The current focus on these notions reflects the ever increasing impact of new media and the underlying complexity of computed function in the broad sense […]

FCJ-133 The Scripted Spaces of Urban Ubiquitous Computing: The experience, poetics, and politics of public scripted space

Christian Ulrik Andersen & Søren Pold Center for Digital Urban Living, Digital Aesthetics Research Center, Aarhus University The computer is moving out into physical and urban reality. Since Mark Weiser’s call for a ‘computer for the 21st century’ in 1991 a migration from the screen and the desktop towards integrating computers and networks into our […]

FCJ-130 Embedding response: self production as a model for an actuated architecture

Mette Ramsgard Thomsen and Karin Bech CITA Centre for Information Technology and Architecture, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen Introduction Ubiquitous computing positions a world where computation is embedded into our surrounding environment. Rather than retrieving information and communication from distinct devices (PCs) removed from contexts and activities, ubiquitous computing proposes that the mediated can […]

Issue 19 – Ubiquity

Ubiquity Editorial – Interaction Designs for Ubicomp Cultures I. Ubicomp Cultures: Hyperbolic Vision, Factual Developments This is a journal issue invested in remarking more than once upon the undecidability hovering today around our getting into contact with ‘ubiquity’ or ‘pervasiveness’ as a potential to be further actualized in the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI), interaction […]
