Co-Reading as a Generative Ontology

  • Simon Biggs University of South Australia

Abstract

This paper discusses the immersive full body motion tracking installation Dark Matter, developed by the author and completed in early 2016. The paper outlines the conceptual focus of the project, including the use of the metaphor of dark matter to explore questions around interactive systems and assemblage. The primary technical considerations involved in the project are also outlined. ‘Co-reading' is proposed as a framework for a generative ontology, within the context of assemblage theory, deployed within a multimodal multi-agent interactive system.

Keywords
