Space, information and cosmology in today’s computer interfaces

BOECHAT, Marina Pantoja;

Full Article:

This paper explores the relationship between information and space, as it unfolds on today’s computer interfaces. We refer to art and design history to show that our conceptions of space evolve over time and give us tools to turn our informational structures into usable landscapes. We believe those landscapes, even nowadays, carry a strong cosmological sense as they participate in creating a sensible and navigable context for information.
