Plotting the continuum
Shaun Murray, ENIAtype

Heralding the end of computational logic is good for the double-edge, of failing in relation to the environment and the dominance of computation.

This issue will plot the continuum through a geocosmic theory of trauma where design can be understood in terms of a dual function: tactical employment or designation of traumatic tensions and developing interfaces for alternative syntheses between such tensions. All contributors will offer perspective on how what we might think of as ‘architecture’ could be invigorated through its contact with ecological thinking, but – and implicitly demonstrating the huge scope of the disciplinary reappraisal we are embarked on – take a very different route – a route that calls for a butchering of openness between computers and the environment that will offer differing models of thinking in design.
