This project is an inquiry into the varied perspectives, concerns, ethics, systems and prospects that emerge when one looks at information as a consumable commodity analogous to food (information’s predecessor in being the biggest consumer industry), mapping consumption patterns, influences on life and lifestyle and impact, and shaping the socio-cultural environment for present and near-future societies. A keen eye is cast on the prevalent systems and conventions (or lack thereof) surrounding internet activity, particularly the forever-expanding sector of short format media creation and consumption to analyse how it affects human beings and their behaviour on both individual and collective scale.
Keywords: analogical research, design ethics, design of technology, digital nutrition, techno-social phenomena
