The 24/7 Bed: Privacy and Publicity in the Age of Social Media
DOI: 10.14361/9783839457658-015
How do we relate today when countless new technologies seem to structure every interaction? And what role does architecture play? What is the architecture of ubiquitous connectivity? Private and public have become completely blurred. We can no longer think of distinct spaces for work, play, domesticity, and rest. We are living in a 24/7 culture. Networked electronic technologies have removed any limit to what can be done in bed. Millions of dispersed beds are taking over from concentrated office buildings. The boudoir is defeating the tower. This text explores the role of the bed as the epicenter of labor, postlabor, and love in the age of social media.
