The book INTERFACE CRITIQUE follows up on the initial conference and discusses the interface as a dynamic cultural phenomenon, opening up a multidisciplinary discourse ranging from engineering and coding to design and communications, from digital humanities and philosophy to media studies and literature.
From the introduction:
"Interface Critique is an attempt to interrogate apparatuses and applications. How can we examine the dissolving intersections between human and machine? How can we comprehend the contexts and conditions of their production? Where and how do these interfaces govern and guide us? How do they shape our perception of our surroundings and of our world? And what significance could the interface have in the context of current technological, social and economical developments?"
