PhD Dissertation:

Hier gibt es die Möglichkeit meine, allerdings in englischer Sprache geschriebene, Dissertation zum Thema immersive, telematische Kunst und globales Bewusstsein, Weltbewusstsein herunterzuladen.

Es ist eine praxisbasierte, interdisziplinäre Arbeit die Human-Computer Interaktion, digitale Mediendesign Praxis und Medienkunst bzw. Theorie berührt. Geschrieben wurde sie mit Mellel, einem exzellenten akademischen Textverarbeiter. In den 14 Monaten des täglichen Schreibens stürzte der nur zwei Male ab, und auch nur während des Versuchs ein korruptes Jpeg zu importieren.
