Abstrakt

Non-determinism is mantra in human and social science approaches to information and communication technologies. Technologies do not determine human behavior. People have a say. Digital media and information and communication technologies afford, frame and mediate our interactions. They offer infrastructures for our meaning-making and movement, but they do not define, determine or control these interactions.

People-environment interactions are frequently understood in terms of affordances (Gibson 1966;1979). The notion of affordances is also used in media and communication studies to describe the particular functionality, offered by platforms, applications or media. In both cases the idea is that architectures afford (offer) particular modes of engagement. Which people can make use of or not.

But are physical structures / digital architectures really ‘open for choice’?

Taking up the conference call for dystopic visions, I would like to interrogate the non-determinist position. I would like to explore how behavior is designed with persuasive integrations of information and communication technologies and the built environment. The paper will focus on mixtures of physical environment and digital technological designs and their impact on human experience.

Specific examples of interaction with digital-physical architectures will be analyzed, with a particular view to environment-technology behavior design and how information and communication technologies constitute corporeality. Bringing together media ecology and science and technology studies the paper performs a dystopic futuristic analysis of how bodies and behavior are designed by integrated digital-physical architectures.
