Synchronous Objects

by stronged

I have recently been made aware of this unique project. Such a great tool to chart movement and the connection of objects. Although it does not seem as successful as the Video Abstraction Tool, the Concept Threads tool is much more relevant to where I would like to take my research. How order can come out of disorder and vice versa through interactive concept and narrative construction. Similar to Deleuze and Guattari’s proposition of Rhizomatic structures, I am intrigued how concepts and narratives can grow and become their own autonomous entity.

Matthew Lewis, who created the tool says, “I find it interesting how perspective and attention determine whether relationships [between concepts] are perceived.” This ties in with Theaetetus’ summation that ‘knowledge is just perception.’ (Bogost, 120)
