This conference aims to explore the concept of 3TS, embedded in the diversity of life, through the convergence of our commitments with various use-cases that will be developed here, each in its own topic, to help us understand some facets of Singular Technologies and situate them in a Third-Technoscape.
In this perspective we invite you to engage in an online conversation on around these two concepts. This will be the main source of our writing, and will take a form between interview and manifesto according to how the conversation evolves: the journey is important.
Together we’re going to report about the practice based research we have been leading in Brussels, involving a number of alternative structures involving community and location, to illustrate various aspects of the concept of Third-Technoscape (3TS).
Quantify Wholeheartedly : Gathering of the women and free software group Samedies for a critical appropriation of self quantification practices. We’re considering gamification & an aesthetics of 3TS.
