Sociotechnical approaches to time and antenarrative

Abstract: What is time? What are the approaches to time in sociotechnical systems? This presentation will look at the illusions about time how time slows down speeds up in our experience. Then we will take a deep dive into what is the relationship of time and space in the materiality of social technical systems.As always I’m very interested in the storytelling aspects of this and what is behind the storytelling what are the processes that lead up to a narrative of a sociotechnical system and how that system changes.
