The city as a physical and imagined process then becomes a reality which cannot be captured with a binary understanding, in which all non-visible is banished.
Davis, The city is more than an accumulation of built places. Interaction of Architecture, Media and Social Phenomena 13 Cities are no direct manifestation of imagination. At the same time, it cannot be argued that the imaginary side of urban life is just an accessory or a cover page for the urban social fabric.
Empirical research cannot directly receive an insight on the dreams and longings of the urban population, if the logic of the virtual is recognized with having its own independent existence and way of development. The dilemma of past urban research was caused by a narrow-minded sight on imagination and virtuality, which did not open up for a more fundamental, non linear arranged virtual layer of the city.
What remained were escapist dreams into the fantastic world of unearthly technological promises.
Since the sixties, special attention has been paid for the hypothesis of an increase of virtual processes in cities. In particular, the Cyborg theorem of the physical space is prominently maintained: The embodiment of space passes on a problematic form of space itself and wipes away the clear borders between the organic and the inorganic.
It seems hard to imagine that reality is to some extent fictional and that virtualities are not mere products of fiction, but real. Interaction of Architecture, Media and Social Phenomena Learning from the development of the Cyborg discourse, urban studies should re-conceptualize their basic attempt to understand urban life by shaping analytical tools to overcome these stereotype distinctions between the real and the imagined, the built and the human, the geographical and the social.
Hybridity is a key concept that derives from the Cyborg theories and which might be capable of showing a way beyond dual concepts. Hybridity became a key concept to understand the interwoven relation between the virtual and the real: The second essential ingredient in cyborgs is machines in their guise, also, as communications systems, texts, and self-acting, ergonomically designed apparatuses.
In particular, the problem of the machine-people contradiction is exposed and qualified as being untenable. Interaction of Architecture, Media and Social Phenomena 15 Understanding the virtual The consequence of the metaphorical understanding of the virtual has led to an urban discourse with the basic assumption of an autonomous sphere of the virtual, not being critically reviewed yet.
The overemphasis of the virtual in the debates around Cyberspace is comprehensible in the sense that this happens every time when technological innovations in the information and communication media became observable.
The debate was coined considerably by the focus on the interaction between humans and technological networks, in which indeed apparent changes in the behaviour of the city dwellers seemed to be of significance Mitchell, From these first theorizing attempts two different conclusions can be drawn: On the one hand, an empirically oriented research agenda appears, where it is considered to keep close track on the observation of the technological innovations.
In this discussion on the city, space was included into a neo-organic perspective, where the city was understood as a neurological information and communication organization. By the intensive diffusion of the new information and communication technologies, the city transforms into an urban center like into a nerve system, designed to generate information and control the movements and actions of its inhabitants.
Existing functional and hierarchical orders are supplemented by vertical, vague and nonlinear communication lines Gille, In this way the metaphor of the body is waived partly and is reduced to being the place for the processing of information.
Urban indicators such as size, structure or order are less stressed, while movements and interactions are emphasized instead as characteristics of urban life. Interaction of Architecture, Media and Social Phenomena 17 Manuel Castells attempts to analyze the effects of the new technologies within the frame of the special economic, social, political and cultural contexts of regions and cities Castells, IT innovations step into interaction with historical changes, where the restructuring of capitalism expresses itself within its matrix of economical and institutional settings of organization.
The qualitative and quantitative changes of communication and information are not only a component of this restructuring; on the contrary, they shape the logic of social development.
This development mode describes a new relationship between production, space and society. Information becomes a resource and this changes the status it has had before. It becomes important as the basis in innovation processes and it is no longer only a product of industry.
Before the informational revolution, the factor of energy for innovations was decisive. Now information takes this place, as transport costs have become insignificant.
In this way, the mode of informational development influences the human approach to production and consumption.
In particular, the socio-cultural symbolism of society is coupled more closely to its production sphere. This is expressed in a transmission of the logic of the informational process. The flexibility of informational production has been made possible through IT technologies and through the flexible organization of consumption and management.
With the new flexibility a change of production size occurs, i. Fast adjustment to the diversifying and innovating market is the key for economic success.
As a consequence, the economy approaches 18 MediaCity: Interaction of Architecture, Media and Social Phenomena the symbolic world of the society more strongly and thus the sharp dividing line between both society and economy - keyword: The Virtual and the Space Referring to the relation of space and society, the informational age is assumed to make a crucial turn: The space of the information flows is overlaying the space of the places.Individuals, when they’re anxious, typically stiffen their facial muscles and become more global (i.e., less differentiated) in their affect expressiveness, even though their anxiety or fear may.
Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the United States. According to data from the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 16 million adults in the United States had a least one major depressive episode in the past year.
