Technologies, Texts and Affordances

"In contrast to recent sociological emphases on the social shaping of technology, this article proposes and illustrates a way of analysing the technological shaping of sociality. Drawing on the concept of affordances (Gibson 1979), the article argues for a recognition of the constraining, as well as enabling, materiality of artefacts. The argument is set in the theoretical context of one of the most recent and comprehensive statements of anti–essentialism (Grint and Woolgar 1997). The position is illustrated through a reinterpretation of some case studies used by proponents of the radical constructivist position."

Moniker: agency behind Light Light's crowd-sourced music video Kilo

"Moniker is an Amsterdam based design studio founded in 2012 by Luna Maurer, Jonathan Puckey and Roel Wouters. ... The studio works across various media for a diverse range of clients ranging from those in the cultural field to commercial companies. ... we explore the social effects of technology – how we use technology and how it influences our daily lives. Often, we ask the public to take part in the development of our projects. The resulting projects expand and grow like plants, displaying their inner organisational process."

[The studio is responsible for the interactive music video "Kilo" performed by Dutch quartet Light Light (http://www.lightlight.nl/) aka Björn Ottenheim & Daan Schinkel of zZz and Alexandra Duvekot & Thijs Havens of Sælors.]
