The real nature of collaborative tradition as a kind of inventive expression within the context of electronic and community applied sciences has remained elusive, a buzzword frequently falling prey to company and ideological pursuits. This booklet used to be collaboratively written by way of six authors, as an experimental 5 day publication dash in January 2010. constructed lower than the aegis of transmediale.10, this 3rd ebook within the festival's parcours sequence ended in the initiation of a brand new vocabulary at the types, media and objectives of collaborative perform. In June 2010, the booklet was once rewritten as part of the Re:Group exhibition at Eyebeam, big apple.

Current conversations around participation idealize harmony and unison, but we ask whether synthesizing perspectives and valorizing consensus might actually subsume dissenting viewpoints, through the tyranny of compromise and the rule of the lowest common denominator. From this view, we fear a disavowal of power rather than an honest discussion about it. And so we pass on politesse, and draw a line in the sand. We aren't interested in raising questions, exploring models of participation or experiments in collaboration.
According to his prescription, individuals act to a ain that which is good for them—the useful. Bentham believed utility could be universally deﬁned and function as a guide for social organization.

Within a political sphere that privileges production this trends towards the valuing of ability and commitment, sometimes phrased in the language of ‘meritocracy'. (That said, as we think about these structures and arrangements outside the so ware model it gets more tricky. How do we apply the concept of “meritocracy” to the realm of art making, where there are fewer objective standards?
