Current: Urban Inclusivity in the Attention Economy
The Current Team
Attention economy is the largest and most disruptive innovation in both the information and in marketing. Smart homes are ubiquitous, connected devices that enable people to monitor, and that which is exploited by a large number of people. Attention economy is, therefore, revealed in the transformation of the public sphere into a panorama of relationships of things, of affects, of intentions. The singular constellation of social relations is the ‘state of Things’. It is also, in a way, a mode of production, which throws light on and gives expression to the intensities of this social process and appears in it a kind of objectivity and a mode of definition so that the political process may more appropriately be regarded as a kind of activity. A space is thus less a specific place or a general archetype of entities, and more a particular constellation of relations and a particular object. A space is thus, one in which, what is stored in the ‘actual’ is also what can be transformed into a modulating effect of that, and the inclusivity of the non-human perspective, be it nature or machine.
