Title: Pandemonium: An essay on predation and modernity
Author: Hookway, Branden Hugh
Advisor: Kwinter, Sanford
Degree: Master of Architecture thesis
Abstract: Our modern world is driven by processes of abstraction. These processes have recently begun to generate criteria of industrial and organizational formation radically different from those to which we became accustomed to during the modernist era. And as we are not held in thrall so much anymore to Law, to de jure formations and judicial enforcement, as we are to the de facto methods by which we communicate and the technological, social, and economic forces that shape this communication, our attempts to divert communication flow, and so to carve out a space of freedom, must be aimed at the level of communication infrastructure, and at the processes by which this infrastructure determines the shape of our social worlds.
