"Ars combinatoria"

October 20, 2003

Geert Lovink on German philosopher-engineer Werner Künzel, in his 1992 essay The Archeology of Computer Assemblage:

Künzel practices ‘Ars Combinatoria’ in his own unique way: he proves that there is a promising future to thinking in rhizomatic bifurcations, applied at the interface between philosophy and technology. This goes beyond the use of a free, associative writing style in order to unlock hidden stories. Electronic media alter the structure of thinking itself.

My dream job title, for sure: "Rhizomatic Bifurcator"

(via Heckler and Coch)
