👋 #helloworld. I'm Mathieu Bujnowskyj / @jykswonjub an architect researching on the #Postdigital condition in #architecture: the indirect and diffuse consequences of digital revolutions on our built environment. I choose for this weekly takeover an #ABC format to illustrate some ideas and observations happening now in our society. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #internetculture #digitalrevolution #beyonddigital
🌐📞 #Arpanet : it is where everything started. From #coldwar technology to to #snapchat stories a lot happened in between.

depot_basel⚡️🛠 #Bricolage : (post)digital aesthetics need to embrace again curiosity, imperfection and playfulness in the manipulation of digital programs and electronic components.

🏙〰️ #cities : It’s not only about roads and buildings anymore. The contemporary city is now an ocean of electromagnetic waves. Invisible signals are transmitting ubiquitous information and re-shaping city dynamics.

👶🏼📱 #digitalnatives : The kids live already in another cultural paradigm, we have to learn to design for them.

📡✈️ #Drones : They are everywhere. The ever increasing automation technologies have deep consequences in the contemporary cultural landscape, sometimes on the most unexpected places and situations.

😜😄#Emoji : they are disrupting our language and visual culture. Emoji-based physical products are becoming extremely popular among the younger generations.

👩🏻✅ #facerecognition : machine vision invades our material reality. That goes as much for snapchat filters than for crowd control and capitalistic optimization.

🏁🌀#Glitch : from technical malfunction to a new genre of digital culture, glitch is now expanding on physical environments too.

📱🔌 #juice : it becomes sometimes more important than food or shelter.

📡🌐 #network : intangible, yet almost ubiquitous connectivity acts more than ever as a powerful spatial organizing force. The architecture of Radio, 2016 by #RichardVijgen is a tool to observe the infos pierre through the eyes of our digital devices. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #fullspectrum #invisiblearchitecture #thewellconnectedenvironement #EMF # #postdigital #thearchitectureofradio #infosphere #intangible #wifi #LTE #gps #machinevision #architecture @zkmkarlsruhe @liam_y @jykswonjub
📴🎪 #PrimitiveHut : architecture needs to reinvent itself and extend its protective role towards the recently built, man-made invisible environments.

✴️🔎 #Panopticon : social media is said to be a new form of digital panopticon. It can be used as instrument of control to passively modify the (political, cultural, even spatial) perception of its users. Selfie panopticon, 2016 by @jykswonjub is an architectural device proposing a certain perception of #Freilagerplatz trough specific. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #selfie #selfiepanopticon #snapchatready #socialmedia #augmentedreality #narcissim #spatialapproproation #basel #postdigital #hgkbasel #selfiestick @hgk_fhnw @hek_basel depot_basel#hybridspace 360stockvrSuper Cool! 📷
⚙💻 #Techbrutalism : The open/closed technology ethical debate is replacing the traditional analog/digital dichotomy. It will have strong aesthetic consequences over the next decade. In the movie #Elysium, this opposition is very visible : The hacker-style open aesthetics of rebels technologies acts as opposite to the streamlined, enclosed design used by the top 1%. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #digitalbricolage #hackerculture #opentechnology #makerculture #cyberpunk #rebel #DIY #brutalism #designethics #postdigital #evolutivity #assemblage
⚙💻 #Techbrutalism : Example A : rebel race-car. The technology supporting the improvement of the race-car is celebrated and visually dominant : a visible assemblage of disparate elements. Bolts, stickers. A certain modularity and evolutivity is envisaged. #opensource technologies #bricolage #hackerculture #makerculture #cyberpunk #DIY #designethics #transparency #mending #productlifespan #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #elysium n.schaetti.publicWow!
⚙💻 vs. #integrateddesign : Example B : streamlined limousine. In opposition, the elite products used by the top 1% in Elysium have a streamlined, enclosed design where inner technology is not visible, nor accessible for personal modification. No elements are visible, yet the product is supposed to have a perfect usability. it’s #digitalmagic #closedtechnolgy protected by #design and #patents. Curent design products are close to this design products : think about the recent cars, smartphones or even buildings. #depotbasel #placeforcontemporarydesign #depotbaselnetwork #mathieubujnowskyj #elysium #seamless #protected #capitalistdesign #designethics #planedobsolescence #digitalperfection prototypehouseAmazing!

About the format

Since its formation in 2011 Depot Basel has aimed to encourage and open up up the ongoing discussion about contemporary design. The most recent initiative in this endeavor is Net-work: a format where we invite designers, non-designers, theorist and practitioners to use our Instagram- account to interfere with the contemporary design discourse from their own perspective on our Instagram we are extending our methods to do so.
