If you have used a website, or an app in the recent past, then you have been taken on a journey known as the 𝑼𝒔𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚.
A 𝑼𝒔𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚 is a metafictional narrative that capture what the user does; the function that the user performs.
The MIT Artifical Intelligence Lab in Cambridge, Massachussets, birth of Hacker lore, affectionately termed users of computer systems 𝑳𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒓𝒔.
Today’s 𝑳𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒓 is a performer. The 𝑳𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒓 performs the 𝑳𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚.
Brud traces the origins of the “performance-lecture” to the “Golden Age of Islam”, circa 700 A.D. – 1300 A.D., a period which gave us many gifts. Physics, mathematics, economics, engineering, art, and culture flourished.
Optics were an especially fertile field. The birth of media lies herein. The 𝑐𝑎𝑚𝑒𝑟𝑎 𝑜𝑏𝑠𝑐𝑢𝑟𝑎, 𝑙𝑎𝑛𝑡𝑒𝑟𝑛𝑎 𝑚𝑎𝑔𝑖𝑐𝑎, 𝑝ℎ𝑒𝑛𝑎𝑘𝑖𝑠𝑡𝑜𝑠𝑐𝑜𝑝𝑒, & 𝑧𝑜𝑒𝑡𝑟𝑜𝑝𝑒, were some of the many instruments termed “philosophical toys”; their display and montage were accompanied with elaborate presentations and religious rhetoric.
The voice of God spoke through the mouth of Reason.
𝑳𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒓 𝑺𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚 asks you to think of mimesis & dogma.
