This collection of pages emerged out of a philosophical thesis, a thesis dealing predominantly with the effects of different technologies on human perception and output. As a result of a three-year research period into questions concerning technology, culture and language, analyzing the dis/continuities between them, a proposal for a structural comparison of the three as abstract concepts emerged. When does culture become technology, technology a form of culture, or either of them a specific form of communication? Can language be considered a ‘cultural technology’? What are the delimiting constraints in our physiological experience that shape the ways we use and produce technologies and/or culture? Parts of the final printed thesis were then reedited by hand, scanned, reedited digitally, printed, edited manually again, and scanned once more. The final form this thesis takes plays on the theory, and vice versa. The result is a crossbreed between the classic tactile draft, handwritten notes, computer writing and formatting glitches, which can be consumed as an image and as a text simultaneously.
