Kulturbot Deployed

This blog traces some adventures in cultural studies, that academic discipline for all and none. The absorption of everyday life as a formal area of study, and the general collapse of the diversified humanities into the realm of critical theory have opened up this tremendous opportunity for the revaluation and understanding of the cultural world in which we live. Kulturbot has been engineered to trace the topography of this emergent field of interaction amongst the personal, social and technological spheres. Released in February of 2010, Kulturbot circles the globe in search of new configurations of our “who’s even counting anymore?” modernity. Observant, unobtrusive, working in the background like a trojan virus, Kulturbot is set to implode at an unspecified date, leaving, in the wake of its disappearance, a space big enough to allow real human beings to sit comfortably and reflect.
