*I dunno if I agree with what Helen is venturing here, but this work is both necessary and interesting.*In the long run, it can’t be about a particular gizmo or service like Google Glass or Microsoft Photosynth. The New Aesthetic issue of “seeing like machines” will boil down to aesthetics. Issues of perception, interpretation, visualization and “reality.”
*James Bridle’s “moodboard for unknown products” is behind us now, but those “unknown products” are showing up in sudden heaps, while a genuine new aesthetic is still some good distance ahead of us.
*I’m guessing that Helen’s approaches will come to mainstream fruition in the 2020s, rather than the 2010s. All the more reason to pay heed and get to work.
