Susanne Küchler : Maritime Metaphysics and the Geometry of the Informational Surface

3:00pm, Dawson Building Lecture Theatre, D110

While we are fully aware of the fact that a graphic pattern and number based code can store and transmit complex information much more efficiently than referential modes of representation, the analysis of pattern systems and the difference they make to culture and society has not significantly advanced beyond a general classification based on motion centred geometries of symmetry. This paper examines an intriguing example from the maritime world of Oceania where complex information is lodged as observable quantity and transmitted across vast distances in time and space via patterns whose underpinning metric and mathematical logic is understood qualitatively, with consequences for culture and society.
