Assembling Publics: New Technologies of Deliberation and Demonstration in Rebuildling Lower Manhattan
David Stark will present material from a research project on how digital modes of deliberation and representation are co-evolving with structures of public planning, design, and policy. That research focuses on representations of the public and representations to the public in the process of rebuilding Lower Manhattan after 9/11. Combining ideas from John Dewey and methods from science and technology studies, it analyzes the socio-technologies of assembly. Who's demonstrating? Architects demonstrate.
