Digital Sociology: Beyond the Digital to the Sociological

"Where sociologists differ from many other social researchers in researching digital media is their awareness that digital data, like any other type of data, are socially created and have a social life, a vitality, of their own. They are not the neutral products of automatic calculation, but represent deliberate decisions by those who formulate the computer algorithms that collect and manipulate these data (boyd and Crawford 2012; Cheney-Lippold 2011; Ruppert et al. 2013). The data that these devices and software produce structure our concepts of identity, embodiment, relationships, our choices and preferences and even our access to services or spaces. Without the knowledge of digital technology users, algorithms measure and sort them, deciding what choices they may be offered (Beer 2009, 2013a). Algorithms and other elements of software, therefore, are generative, a productive form of power (Lash 2007)."

Lunar Economic Zone: a speculative architecture student project

'Lunar Economic Zone' by Zhan Wang, Part 2 Project 2014, Architectural Association London UK.

"The 2028 Mid August Day Lunar Mineral Parade is a speculative event which takes place in the newly formed Lunar Economic Zone, an administrative agglomeration of Shenzhen and the Moon, on August 15 2028. Coordinated by Zhan Wang, the event is designed to be seen by the mechanical eyes of the world's media and is an external projection of pomp and ceremony showcasing an emerging resource rich, technology advance superpoer. As the media frenzy descends on the city the world is invited to the grand parade that marks the first consignment of lunar minerals touching down on earth. The parade route takes spectators along the main axis of city from the 10000 meter tall space elevator to the mega ships of the world's largest mineral port. As the world's largest rare earth producer China currently controls 90% of the mineral market. Their recent limits places upon mineral exports has artificially driven rare earth prices to unprecendented levels. Western nations are scrambling to find their own mineral deposits to counter the Chinese monopoly. Between documentary and fiction, between propoganda and news the Lunar Economic Zone plays on our fears of a localised resource economy."

Storytelling through playful interactions

"For the new Zippy kidswear store in Setúbal, Portugal we designed two interactive installations and built both in-house at D&P. The 'Sound Poster' is a screen-printed panel that uses conductive ink to trigger sounds from the printed characters, and the 'Fun Receipt' is a receipt for kids, which prints out of a giant mouth on the cash desk and includes characters to colour in, mazes and other games."

(Elly Bowness, 2015)
