Interface Creep

Peer-reviewed publication in Antennae (collab. with Michaela Büsse), 2018


Interface Creep is a short collaborative fiction piece based on an exploration of the virtual space offered by Apple Maps that investigates mapping as algorithmic knowledge production. The narrative takes a post- anthropogenic point of view with sensing, processing, interpreting of aerial imagery mainly done by and for machines. We follow the trace of the machine’s vision and cognition process. Through a radical alienation of the human perspective we invite the reader to reflect on the everyday interaction with maps and how it affects sense-making and is affected by asymmetrical structures behind technologies.
