Studio Bertjan Pot's Masks

"I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy.

Bizarre, Fleshy Sculptures by Francesco Albano

Contemplative Computing. Vers une informatique contemplative. Par Rémi Sussan le 15/07/11 | 6 commentaires | 5,465 lectures | Impression Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, du Peace Innovation Lab à Stanford et du Groupe d’étude des systèmes sociaux numériques de Microsoft Labs, a débuté son intervention à la conférence Lift en nous suggérant une petite activité : “consultez vos e-mails” a-t-il demandé, “vous allez le faire de toute façon”. Mais il nous a demandé d’observer notre comportement à ce moment : il semble en effet qu’en majorité, les internautes retiennent leur respiration au moment de cette consultation. Ce qui a pour conséquence d’augmenter notre CO² dans le sang et donc notre sensation d’anxiété.

Voilà pour lui un exemple de la manière dont les technologies modernes provoquent des stress. Image : Alex Soojung-Kim Pang sur la scène de Lift, photographié par Swannyyy.
