Description:
The contribution will interpret the poet's and philosopher's THEORY OF PORES as a concept for an ideal interface. It is impossible to build ideal interfaces, but it is possible to take them as a challenge for thinking about those, which were and are built. The lecture will include an excursion through the deep time of technical visioning, mainly through the 16th and the 17th centuries.
