In this iteration, the question has come to focus on the object-creation itself, which then leaves the historical and cultural questions — what I really think of as the true research aspect of the project — implied. I'm not certain if that is a limitation of the method here, since it seems based in papers that are only papers and don't have a physical work associated with them.
A few notes:
- By "objects before us," I mean the elements that go into the possibility space of objects we live with: the technology and cultural narratives.
- I am not certain how explicit message-memory needs to be or will end up being.
- I am also not certain of the precedence object as communication tool will take over object as symbiotic mechanism. I began with symbiosis and have been thinking more about communication lately. While I am interested in breadth and a syncretic kind of paper, try to do both might be too difficult.
