Can code create a true mirror of the world?
Written and performed by Steve Rushton with the visual aid of Ray & Charles Eames' 'A Communications Primer' (1953)
The notion of 'feedback' is all pervasive in contemporary culture -- a technical and behavioral mechanism which today works in all levels of the media, from reality TV shows, to the construction and broadcast of a news event, to everyday e-mail exchanges and social networking activity. The term was popularized via the Macy conferences on Cybernetics (1946-1953). It was at these conferences where the application of the paradigm of cybernetics (the science of feedback) was first instituted across a number of scientific disciplines (behavioral psychology, evolutionary theory, anthropology, communications theory, modern [war] games theory to name a few).
