In this seminar, the problem of the interface will provide a way into contemporary spatial concerns and the contexts of their historical, cultural, and technological development. We will treat the interface not as a technology, but rather as a way of relating to technology that encompasses gestures, expectations, training, social formations, and habits of thought. A particular focus will be on notions of agency, mediation, and embodiment. Course readings will situate the interface with respect to cultural theory and practice, and the history of technology, while course projects will explore technological lineages as a way of making visible what the operation of the interface often renders invisible.
