Designing Choreographies for the New Economy of Attention
JUNE 23, 2009
The present essay grows out of a project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities where we are studying the integration methods of remote participation and digital backchannels into live scholarly events ( [link] ). We are particularly interested in the physical organization of attention and distraction as audience members at a lecture or conference interact with one another across multiple channels and sites. The audience is responsible to attend and remain attentive.
