Prototyping: A Politics of Memory

Abstract

This paper presents a view on the architectural prototype as an exteriorisation of human
memory. Bernard Stiegler describes the politics of memory involved in the process of
hypomnesis, in which memory is stored in technology. Stiegler’s ideas with relation to the
prototype were developed while working on a research prototype. Four modes of
exteriorisation have been extracted from that process: the use of memory aids, the prototype
as stepping stone for thought, the digitisation of fabrication, and the prototype used for
communication. This analysis provides a pathway for making expert knowledge available and
accessible as a common good.
