title Second-order prosthesis: Human-aided design within the expanded field of ecology
source Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / The University of Newcastle, Australia 27-29 April 2011, pp. 345-354
summary This paper defines second-order prosthesis in which the human subject, by virtue of her corporeality or imagination, is resourced by a technological system. Underpinning this definition is Massumiís notion of asymmetrical, symbiotic prosthesis and the second- order cybernetic challenge to objectivity. Through the case study of an immersive, sensor-based, interactive artwork, it is found that there are resonances between technology engaged in second-order prosthesis and the ideology of biology. Notions of survival, reproduction and evolution become a critical part of second-order prosthetic discourse and an expanded field of ecology is identified as the territory of analysis for resulting techno-human relations. A second case study explores computer-aided design (CAD) and virtual space. This study confirms the status of the technological in an expanded ecology as both CAD and virtual space resource imagination in the production of human-aided design.
