Towards a Spatial View: Deleuze and Guattari on Technology.
Wise, John Macgregor
A spatial view of technology involves the relationships in space between technologies, placing significance on the actual dispersion of technology and relations of dependence and support between any particular technology and various social, chemical and biological dimensions. This paper seeks to elaborate a view of technology that is primarily spatially based. It incorporates the writings of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, as well as the actor-network perspective advocated by Bruno Latour, Michel Callon, John Law, Andrew Pickering and other sociologists of science.
