“A metalogue is a conversation about some problematic subject. This conversation should be such that not only do the participants discuss the problem but the structure of the conversation as a whole is also relevant to the same subject. Only some of the conversations here presented achieve this double format.”
Gregory Bateson, Steps to an Ecology of Mind
This project explores the means for manifesting Bateson’s double format by creating a design framework so that authors and audiences of differing backgrounds can share communally generated narratives.
Moreover, the structure of these narratives invites audiences into digitally generated reflective spaces, where over a space of time, the audience can; reflect upon, comment, share resources, ideas and references in order to create a democratic community of reflection.
The expected results will be achieved by the designing and structuring of a poetic data-bases which can be shared via website platforms. The narratives for this project are extended versions of those generated during the MONO.DIO.POLI.META.LOGUES project.
